  • Application notes

  • Target

    • Function
      Polycomb group (PcG) protein. Component of the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, which methylates 'Lys-9' and 'Lys-27' of histone H3, leading to transcriptional repression of the affected target gene. The PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex may also serve as a recruiting platform for DNA methyltransferases, thereby linking two epigenetic repression systems. Genes repressed by the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex include HOXC8, HOXA9, MYT1 and CDKN2A.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in brain, colon, heart, kidney, liver, lung, muscle, ovary, peripheral blood leukocytes, pancreas, placenta, prostate, spleen, small intestine, testis, thymus and uterus. Appears to be overexpressed in breast and colon cancer.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the WD repeat ESC family.
      Contains 7 WD repeats.
    • Developmental stage
      Expression peaks at the G1/S phase boundary.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus. Chromosome. Transiently colocalizes with XIST at inactive X chromosomes.

    • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin embedded mouse lymph node tissue labeling EED with ab126542 antibody at 1/75 dilution.

    • Immunohistochemical analysis of on frozen cytospins preparations of V5-tagged Human EED expressed in Hek293T labeling EED with ab126542 antibody (left). Cytospin preparation of V5-tagged Human MNDA protein was used as a negative control (middle). Labeling with an anti-V5 mAb confirmed the efficiency of transfection (right).


    • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin embedded Human tonsil tissue labeling EED with ab126542 antibody at 1/40 dilution (green). DAPI was used to counterstain the nuclei (blue).
