Senigl et al. show that genome susceptibility to somatic hypermutation (SHM) is confined within topologically associated domains (TADs) and is linked to markers of strong enhancers and stalled transcription and high levels of the cohesin loader NIPBL. Insertion of an ectopic SHM targeting element renders an entire TAD susceptible to SHM.
