EZH2 enhancer of zeste 2 polycomb repressive complex 2 subunit

Also known as: WVS; ENX1; KMT6; WVS2; ENX-1; EZH2b; KMT6A

Summary

This gene encodes a member of the Polycomb-group (PcG) family. PcG family members form multimeric protein complexes, which are involved in maintaining the transcriptional repressive state of genes over successive cell generations. This protein associates with the embryonic ectoderm development protein, the VAV1 oncoprotein, and the X-linked nuclear protein. This protein may play a role in the hematopoietic and central nervous systems. Multiple alternatively splcied transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.
