"L3MBTL2" - Lethal(3)malignant brain tumor-like protein 2 in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

L3MBTL2Lethal(3)malignant brain tumor-like protein 2; Putative Polycomb group (PcG) protein. PcG proteins maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of genes, probably via a modification of chromatin, rendering it heritably changed in its expressibility. Its association with a chromatin-remodeling complex suggests that it may contribute to prevent expression of genes that trigger the cell into mitosis. Binds to monomethylated and dimethylated ’Lys-20’ on histone H4. Binds histone H3 peptides that are monomethylated or dimethylated on ’Lys-4’, ’Lys-9’ or ’Lys-27’; MBT domain containing (705 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
E2F6
Transcription factor E2F6; Inhibitor of E2F-dependent transcription. Binds DNA cooperatively with DP proteins through the E2 recognition site, 5’-TTTC[CG]CGC-3’. Has a preference for the 5’-TTTCCCGC-3’ E2F recognition site. E2F6 lacks the transcriptional activation and pocket protein binding domains. Appears to regulate a subset of E2F-dependent genes whose products are required for entry into the cell cycle but not for normal cell cycle progression. May silence expression via the recruitment of a chromatin remodeling complex containing histone H3-K9 methyltransferase activity. Overexp [...] (281 aa)

PCGF6
Polycomb group RING finger protein 6; Transcriptional repressor. May modulate the levels of histone H3K4Me3 by activating KDM5D histone demethylase. Component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1-like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A ’Lys-119’, rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. Within the PRC1-like complex, regulates RNF2 [...] (350 aa)
     
  0.990
RNF2
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase RING2; E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that mediates monoubiquitination of ’Lys-119’ of histone H2A (H2AK119Ub), thereby playing a central role in histone code and gene regulation. H2AK119Ub gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression and participates in X chromosome inactivation of female mammals. May be involved in the initiation of both imprinted and random X inactivation (By similarity). Essential component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1-like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state [...] (336 aa)
     
  0.989
TFDP1
Transcription factor Dp-1; Can stimulate E2F-dependent transcription. Binds DNA cooperatively with E2F family members through the E2 recognition site, 5’-TTTC[CG]CGC-3’, found in the promoter region of a number of genes whose products are involved in cell cycle regulation or in DNA replication. The E2F1-DP complex appears to mediate both cell proliferation and apoptosis. Blocks adipocyte differentiation by repressing CEBPA binding to its target gene promoters; Belongs to the E2F/DP family (410 aa)
     
  0.982
RING1
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase RING1; Constitutes one of the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligases that mediate monoubiquitination of ’Lys-119’ of histone H2A, thereby playing a central role in histone code and gene regulation. H2A ’Lys-119’ ubiquitination gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression and participates in X chromosome inactivation of female mammals. Essential component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1-like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG P [...] (406 aa)

MGA
MAX gene-associated protein; Functions as a dual-specificity transcription factor, regulating the expression of both MAX-network and T-box family target genes. Functions as a repressor or an activator. Binds to 5’-AATTTCACACCTAGGTGTGAAATT-3’ core sequence and seems to regulate MYC-MAX target genes. Suppresses transcriptional activation by MYC and inhibits MYC-dependent cell transformation. Function activated by heterodimerization with MAX. This heterodimerization serves the dual function of both generating an E-box-binding heterodimer and simultaneously blocking interaction of a corepr [...] (3065 aa)

YAF2
YY1 associated factor 2, isoform CRA_d; Zinc fingers RANBP2-type (204 aa)
       
  0.971
CBX3
Chromobox protein homolog 3; Seems to be involved in transcriptional silencing in heterochromatin-like complexes. Recognizes and binds histone H3 tails methylated at ’Lys-9’, leading to epigenetic repression. May contribute to the association of the heterochromatin with the inner nuclear membrane through its interaction with lamin B receptor (LBR). Involved in the formation of functional kinetochore through interaction with MIS12 complex proteins. Contributes to the conversion of local chromatin to a heterochromatin-like repressive state through H3 ’Lys-9’ trimethylation, mediates the [...] (183 aa)
     
  0.966
EHMT1
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase EHMT1; Histone methyltransferase that specifically mono- and dimethylates ’Lys-9’ of histone H3 (H3K9me1 and H3K9me2, respectively) in euchromatin. H3K9me represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression by recruiting HP1 proteins to methylated histones. Also weakly methylates ’Lys-27’ of histone H3 (H3K27me). Also required for DNA methylation, the histone methyltransferase activity is not required for DNA methylation, suggesting that these 2 activities function independently. Probably targeted to histone H3 by different DNA-binding [...] (1298 aa)
     
  0.948
MAX
Protein max; Transcription regulator. Forms a sequence-specific DNA- binding protein complex with MYC or MAD which recognizes the core sequence 5’-CAC[GA]TG-3’. The MYC-MAX complex is a transcriptional activator, whereas the MAD-MAX complex is a repressor. May repress transcription via the recruitment of a chromatin remodeling complex containing H3 ’Lys-9’ histone methyltransferase activity. Represses MYC transcriptional activity from E-box elements (160 aa)
