Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.
Please check that this product meets your needs before purchasing. If you have any questions, special requirements or concerns, please send us an inquiry and/or contact our Support team ahead of purchase.

FunctionPolycomb group (PcG) protein. Catalytic subunit 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. Able to mono-, di- and trimethylate 'Lys-27' of histone H3 to form H3K27me1, H3K27me2 and H3K27me3, respectively. Compared to EZH2-containing complexes, it is more abundant in embryonic stem cells and plays a major role in forming H3K27me3, which is required for embryonic stem cell identity and proper differentiation. 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, CDKN2A and retinoic acid target genes.
Tissue specificityExpressed in many tissues. Overexpressed in numerous tumor types including carcinomas of the breast, colon, larynx, lymphoma and testis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone-lysine methyltransferase family. EZ subfamily.
Contains 1 SET domain.
Developmental stageExpression decreases during senescence of embryonic fibroblasts (HEFs). Expression peaks at the G1/S phase boundary.
modificationsPhosphorylated by AKT1. Phosphorylation by AKT1 reduces methyltransferase activity.

HeLa (human epithelial cell line from cervix adenocarcinoma) cells stained for KMT6 / EZH2 (green) using ab228697 at 1/200 dilution in ICC/IF. Cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde at RT for 15 minutes.
Nuclear counterstain: Hoechst 33342 (blue).
Cross-linked ChIP was performed with HeLa chromatin extract and 5 μg of either control rabbit IgG or ab228697. The precipitated DNA was detected by PCR with primer set targeting to CCND2.
