    H3.3K27M mutant proteins reprogram epigenome by sequestering the PRC2 complex to poised enhancers

    Dong Fang et al.
    Redistribution of the PRC2 complex in H3.3K27M mutant cells to poised enhancers contributes to the global reduction of H3K27me3 in cells expressing the mutant proteins.

    Increasing Notch signaling antagonizes PRC2-mediated silencing to promote reprograming of germ cells into neurons

    Stefanie Seelk et al.
    Increased Notch signaling enhances germ cell reprograming in C. elegans by antagonizing PRC2-mediated repression, which results in the activation of UTX-1 and other reprograming-promoting genes.

    PCGF6-PRC1 suppresses premature differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells by regulating germ cell-related genes

    Mitsuhiro Endoh et al.
    PCGF6 links sequence specific target recognition by the MAX/MGA transcription factor complex to PRC1 (polycomb repressive complex 1) -dependent transcriptional silencing of germ cell-specific genes in mouse pluripotent stem cells.

    Conversion of random X-inactivation to imprinted X-inactivation by maternal PRC2

    Clair Harris et al.
    The PRC2 Polycomb complex made in the mouse oocyte prevents transcriptional inactivation of the maternal X-chromosome in the early embryo.

    Conserved RNA-binding specificity of polycomb repressive complex 2 is achieved by dispersed amino acid patches in EZH2

    Yicheng Long et al.
    Biochemical and mutagenesis analysis reveal the long-anticipated RNA-binding elements of Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2), an important chromatin modifier, allowing construction of separation-of-function mutants of PRC2 defective in RNA binding but retaining histone-modifying activity.

    Interactions with RNA direct the Polycomb group protein SCML2 to chromatin where it represses target genes

    Roberto Bonasio et al.
    The Polycomb group protein SCML2 contributes to the assembly and gene silencing function of Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) and requires an RNA-binding region to reach chromatin targets.

    Geometry of antiparallel microtubule bundles regulates relative sliding and stalling by PRC1 and Kif4A

    Sithara Wijeratne, Radhika Subramanian
    Geometrical features of microtubule arrays regulate the collective activity of motor and non-motor proteins.

    RYBP stimulates PRC1 to shape chromatin-based communication between Polycomb repressive complexes

    Nathan R Rose et al.
    The E3 ubiquitin ligase activity of polycomb repressive complex 1 is stimulated by RYBP to support a histone modification-dependent communication between polycomb repressive complexes in mice.

    KDM2B links the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) to recognition of CpG islands

    Anca M Farcas et al.
    A protein that can recognize regions of DNA with a high proportion of unmethylated CpG dinucleotides, and then recruit polycomb group proteins to these CpG islands, has been identified.
