    Transcription factors (TFs) determine the transcription activity of target genes and play a central role in controlling the transcription in response to various environmental stresses. Three dimensional genome structures such as local loops play a fundamental role in the regulation of transcription, although the link between such structures and the regulation of TF binding to cis-regulatory elements remains to be elucidated. Here, we show that during transcriptional activation of the fission yeast fbp1 gene, binding of Rst2 (a critical C2H2 zinc-finger TF) is mediated by a local loop structure. During fbp1 activation, Rst2 is first recruited to upstream-activating sequence 1 (UAS1), then it subsequently binds to UAS2 (a critical cis-regulatory site located approximately 600 base pairs downstream of UAS1) through a loop structure that brings UAS1 and UAS2 into spatially close proximity. Tup11/12 (the Tup-family corepressors) suppress direct binding of Rst2 to UAS2, but this suppression is counteracted by the recruitment of Rst2 at UAS1 and following delivery to UAS2 through a loop structure. These data demonstrate a previously unappreciated mechanism for the recruitment and expansion of TF-DNA interactions within a promoter mediated by local three-dimensional genome structures and for timely TF-binding via counteractive regulation by the Tup-family corepressors. © The Author(s) 2017.
