During the process of peripheral nerve myelination, EGR2 expression is controlled by a feedforward transcriptional program initiated by SOX10 and maintained by POU3F2, PU3F1 and EGR2 itself (reviewed in Svaren and Meijer, 2008). Expression of EGR2 during the myelination process is controlled by a myelinating Schwann cell enhancer (MSE) 35 kb downstream of the gene (Ghislain et al, 2002). The MSE is bound by SOX10, POU3F1 and POU3F2 (Ghislain and Charnay, 2006; Reiprich et al, 2010). SOX10 in turn recruits SMARCA4, HDAC1 and HDAC2 to play overlapping but non-redundant roles in activating EGR2 expression (Jacob et al, 2011; Chen et al, 2011; Weider et al, 2012).
