Table 2 Numbers of bidirectional gene pairs that are separated by a specific intergenic distance

From: Bidirectional promoters exhibit characteristic chromatin modification signature associated with transcription elongation in both sense and antisense directions

Intergenic distance Number of bidirectional pairs
1 nucleosome (1–170 bp) 453
2 nucleosomes (170–340 bp) 245
3 nucleosomes (340–510 bp) 120
4 nucleosomes (510–680 bp) 78
5 nucleosomes (680–850 bp) 44
6 nucleosomes (850 - 1000 bp) 34
Total 974
  1. The intergenic distance is calculated relative to the number of nucleosomes that can be accommodated between the two TSS
