motifs/domains
  • a C-terminal BAH domain, which is found in several chromatin-binding proteins involved in transcriptional repression and required for BAHD1 colocalization with H3K27me3 (Bierne 2009)

    basic FUNCTION
  • heterochromatinization factor repressing several proliferation and survival genes, in particular the insulin-like growth factor II gene (IGF2)(Bierne 2009)
  • acts as a silencer by recruiting at specific promoters a set of proteins that coordinate heterochromatin assembly (Bierne 2009)
  • acts as a tumor suppressor through the silencing of cancer-related genes, such as IGF2, in adult tissues (Bierne 2009)

    protein
  • interacts with HP1, MBD1, HDAC5, and several transcription factors (acts as a silencer that connects heterochromatin factors, such as HP1, MBD1, and HDAC5, to DNA-bound transcription factors, such as SP1, to repress transcription at specific euchromatic loci)(Bierne 2009)
