Suppressor of zeste 12 homolog
SUZ12, JJAZ1, KIAA0160
This zinc finger gene has been identified at the breakpoints of a recurrent chromosomal translocation reported in endometrial stromal sarcoma. Recombination of these breakpoints results in the fusion of this gene and JAZF1. The protein encoded by this gene contains a zinc finger domain in the C terminus of the coding region.

This is followed by dissociation of the polycomb repressive complexes, including the H3K27 methyltransferase enhancer of zeste homologue (EZH2), suppressor of zeste 12 (SUZ12), and ring finger protein 2 (RNF2) from, and concomitant recruitment of H3K27 demethylase ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat on chromosome X (UTX) to UCP1 and PGC1α promoters, leading to decreased H3K27 trimethylation, a histone transcriptional repression mark.

Inactivation of the polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), resulting from inactivating mutations of its constituents SUZ12 or EED1, has recently been identified in 70-90% of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors.
Antonescu et al., Tampa, United States. In Am J Surg Pathol, Jan 2016
Mutations in EED and SUZ12 induce loss of trimethylation at lysine 27 of histone 3 (H3K27me3), with subsequent aberrant transcriptional activation of polycomb repressive complex 2-repressed homeobox master regulators.

Using comprehensive genomic approaches, we identified loss-of-function somatic alterations of the Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) components (EED or SUZ12) in 92% of sporadic, 70% of NF1-associated and 90% of radiotherapy-associated MPNSTs.

Here we provide genomic, cellular, and mouse modelling data demonstrating that the polycomb group gene SUZ12 functions as tumour suppressor in PNS tumours, high-grade gliomas and melanomas by cooperating with mutations in NF1.

We also show that Bvht interacts with SUZ12, a component of polycomb-repressive complex 2 (PRC2), during cardiomyocyte differentiation, suggesting that Bvht mediates epigenetic regulation of cardiac commitment.

Data indicate that binding of EZH2, SUZ12 and EED, the 3 subunits of Plybomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), is required for PRC2 full activity, and late during viral infection, a significant increase in PRC2 protein association with chromatin.
Gudas et al., New York City, United States. In J Cell Physiol, 2011
Data show that RARgamma is required for deposition of H2A.Z and Suz12 at RA target genes, and that in embryonic stem cells both RARgamma and Suz12 exist in a multi-protein complex in the absence of ligand.
