Gutierrez-Perez et al. show that BTB domain-containing isoforms of Pipsqueak associate with architectural proteins, whereas Psq lacking BTB colocalizes with Polycomb. Induction of differentiation by the hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone results in recruitment of the ecdysone receptor and Psq lacking BTB to enhancers and establishment of interactions with promoters of activated genes.
