  • Function
    Polycomb group (PcG) protein that specifically recognizes and binds mono- and dimethyllysine residues on target proteins, therey acting as a 'reader' of a network of post-translational modifications. PcG proteins maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of genes: acts as a chromatin compaction factor by recognizing and binding mono- and dimethylated histone H1b/HIST1H1E at 'Lys-26' (H1bK26me1 and H1bK26me2) and histone H4 at 'Lys-20' (H4K20me1 and H4K20me2), leading to condense chromatin and repress transcription. Recognizes and binds p53/TP53 monomethylated at 'Lys-382', leading to repress p53/TP53-target genes. Also recognizes and binds RB1/RB monomethylated at 'Lys-860'. Participates in the ETV6-mediated repression. Probably plays a role in cell proliferation. Overexpression induces multinucleated cells, suggesting that it is required to accomplish normal mitosis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Expression is reduced in colorectal cancer cell line SW480 and promyelocytic leukemia cell line HL-60.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 C2HC-type zinc finger.
    Contains 3 MBT repeats.
    Contains 1 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domain.
  • Developmental stage
    In interphase cells, it is scattered throughout the nucleoplasm. In mitotic cells, it strongly associates with condensed chromosomes from the prophase to telophase.
  • Domain
    The MBT repeat 2 specifically recognizes and binds monomethylated and dimethylated proteins. In contrast, it does not bind trimethylated proteins. The MBT repeat 1 does not bind methylated peptides but inserts a proline ring in a Pro-Ser-Ser/Thr sequence context.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Excluded from the nucleolus. Does not colocalizes with the PcG protein BMI1, suggesting that these two proteins do not belong to the same complex.
