Target

  • Function
    Binds to heterochromatin. Does not interact with either methylated or unmethylated DNA (in vitro).
  • Tissue specificity
    Detected in heart, placenta, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in MBD5 are the cause of mental retardation autosomal dominant type 1 (MRD1) [MIM:156200]. Mental retardation is characterized by significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 MBD (methyl-CpG-binding) domain.
    Contains 1 PWWP domain.
  • Domain
    Both MBD and PWWP domains are necessary for chromocentric localization.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Chromosome. Associated with pericentric heterochromatin and Nucleus. Not associated with pericentric heterochromatin.
