    basic FUNCTION
  • encoded genuine M phase phosphoproteins
  • methyl-H3K9-binding protein which contributes to tumour progression
  • recognizes methyl-H3K9 marks and directs DNA methylation to repress tumour suppressor gene expression and, in turn, has an important function in epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and metastasis
  • couples histone H3K9 methylation and DNA methylation for tumour suppressor gene silencing and metastasis

    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • targets the E-cadherin (CDH1) gene promoter and modulates the expression of this key regulator of cell behaviour and tumour progression through its methyl-H3K9 binding
  • could repress E-cadherin expression through methyl-H3K9 binding
  • interacts with H3K9 methyltransferases EHMT1 and SETDB2 , as well as DNA methyltransferase 3A
