Chromatin regulation: how complex does it get?
Marburg an der Lahn, Germany. In Epigenetics, 2014
In this review we discuss our current knowledge of repressor complexes that contain MBT domain proteins and/or the CoREST co-repressor and use them as a paradigm to illustrate the unexpected heterogeneity and tool sharing of chromatin regulating protein complexes.
Chromatin repressive complexes in stem cells, development, and cancer.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Cell Stem Cell, 2014
Here, we review the roles of the polycomb repressive complexes, PRC1 and PRC2, and the HDAC1- and HDAC2-containing complexes, NuRD, Sin3, and CoREST, in stem cells, development, and cancer, as well as the ongoing efforts to develop therapies targeting these complexes in human cancer.
HOTAIR: a cancer-related long non-coding RNA.
In Neoplasma, 2013
Recent studies revealed HOX transcript antisense RNA, a lncRNA with regulatory functions of transcription, could bind PRC2 and LSD1/CoREST/REST complexes and direct to the specific gene sites, resulted in H3K27 methylation and H3K4 demethylation and ultimately gene silencing.
