DAG for GO:0048096id: GO:0048096

name: chromatin-mediated maintenance of transcription
namespace: biological_process
def: "Maintenance of transcription by remodelling of chromatin into an 'open configuration'. Once established, this regulation is mitotically stable and is maintained over many cell divisions. It is also heritable." [GOC:jid]
comment: Note that this process is the opposite of chromatin silencing. This regulation is exemplified by members of the trithorax group, which maintain the active state of homeotic gene transcription. Do not confuse with GO:0140673 ; label "chromatin maintenance during transcription elongation, which describes the reforming of chromatin after RNA polymerase II passage.
