NSPc1, Nervous system polycomb 1
PCGF1 is a mammalian homolog of the Drosophila polycomb group genes, which act as transcriptional repressors to regulate anterior-posterior patterning in early embryonic development (Nunes et al., 2001 [PubMed 11287196]). See also PCGF2 (MIM 600346).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2008] (from
Pcgf1 is an epigenetic regulator of hematopoietic cell differentiation. Simultaneous depletion of Runx1 and Pcgf1 allows sustained self-renewal while blocking differentiation of lineage marker-negative cells in vitro.
