Chromobox homolog 3

HP1gamma, M32, CBX3
At the nuclear envelope, the nuclear lamina and heterochromatin are adjacent to the inner nuclear membrane. The protein encoded by this gene binds DNA and is a component of heterochromatin. This protein also can bind lamin B receptor, an integral membrane protein found in the inner nuclear membrane. The dual binding functions of the encoded protein may explain the association of heterochromatin with the inner nuclear membrane. This protein binds histone H3 tails methylated at Lys-9 sites. This protein is also recruited to sites of ultraviolet-induced DNA damage and double-strand breaks. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein but differing in the 5' UTR, have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011] (from NCBI)

Wagner et al., Regensburg, Germany. In Hum Gene Ther, Dec 2015

We and others have demonstrated that a 1.5 kb methylation-free CpG island from the human HNRPA2B1-CBX3 housekeeping genes (A2UCOE) effectively prevents transgene silencing and variegation in cell lines, multipotent and pluripotent stem cells, and their differentiated progeny.
Proteomic analysis of embryonic kidney development: Heterochromatin proteins as epigenetic regulators of nephrogenesis.

Zhou et al., Wuhan, China. In Sci Rep, 2014
Cbx3 is up-regulated during gonad reversal and is likely to have a role in spermatogenesis.
Proteomic and genomic approaches reveal critical functions of H3K9 methylation and heterochromatin protein-1γ in reprogramming to pluripotency.
Plath et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Nat Cell Biol, 2013
Similarly, we find that inhibition of heterochromatin protein-1γ (Cbx3), a protein known to recognize H3K9 methylation, enhances reprogramming.
Molecular basis of pregnancy-induced breast cancer prevention.
Russo et al., In Horm Mol Biol Clin Investig, 2012
This is accompanied by upregulation of noncoding RNA (ncRNA) elements including X2-inactive specific transcript (XIST) and chromatin remodeling genes, such as chromodomain helicase DNA-binding protein 2 (CHD2) and the chromobox homolog 3 (CBX3), whose products are required for controlling recruitment of protein/protein or DNA/protein interactions Another important gene upregulated in the parous breast epithelial cells is the histone-lysine N-methyltransferase or enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2), a member of the polycomb group (PcG) forming multimeric protein complexes that maintains the transcriptional repressive state of genes over successive cell generations.
Structural basis of the chromodomain of Cbx3 bound to methylated peptides from histone h1 and G9a.
Zang et al., Hefei, China. In Plos One, 2011
The Cbx3 chromodomain binds with comparable affinities to all of the methylated H3K9, H1K26 and G9aK185 peptides.
HP1γ links histone methylation marks to meiotic synapsis in mice.
Koseki et al., Yokohama, Japan. In Development, 2011
the role of the HP1gamma/G9a axis is to retain centromeric regions of unpaired homologous chromosomes in close alignment and facilitate progression of their pairing in early meiotic prophase
Epigenetic displacement of HP1 from heterochromatin by HIV-1 Vpr causes premature sister chromatid separation.
Ishizaka et al., Tokyo, Japan. In J Cell Biol, 2011
HIV-1 Vpr displaces heterochromatin protein 1-alpha and heterochromatin protein 1-gamma from chromatin, resulting in premature chromatid separation.

Blasco et al., Madrid, Spain. In Nat Genet, 2007
Telomerase-deficient Terc(-/-) mice with short telomeres show decreased trimethylation of histone 3 at Lys9 (H3K9) and histone 4 at Lys20 (H4K20) in telomeric and subtelomeric chromatin as well as decreased CBX3 binding accompanied by increased H3 and H4 acetylation at these regions.

As a consequence of Erk activation PR is phosphorylated, Msk1 is activated, and a ternary complex PR-Erk-Msk1 is recruited to MMTV nucleosome B. Msk1 phosphorylates H3 at serine 10, which is followed by acetylation at lysine 14, displacement of HP1gamma, and recruitment of Brg1, PCAF, and RNA polymerase II.
