Characterisation of AEBP2: a polycomb repressive complex 2 component

Abstract:

Polycomb complexes act as repressors of transcription at many developmentally important genes. Repression by polycomb-repressive complex 2 (PRC2) is mediated by the deposition of a tri-methylation mark on lysine 27 of the histone H3 tail (H3K27me3). The PRC2 complex consists of three core proteins: EED, SUZ12, and one of either EZH2 or EZH1, which contain the enzymatic activity. The zinc finger containing protein AEBP2 (AE1 binding protein 2) has been co-purified with the PRC2 complex. The...
