We study the trimeric transcription factor NF-Y, which has similar structure to histones. We characterize structure/function features and the architecture of regulated genomic regions in relation to epigenetic markers, expression levels, and to the partner transcription factors. Finally, we study its different isoforms involved in pluripotency and cell differentiation.
