Summaries for SUZ12 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SUZ12 Gene

  • This zinc finger gene has been identified at the breakpoints of a recurrent chromosomal translocation reported in endometrial stromal sarcoma. Recombination of these breakpoints results in the fusion of this gene and JAZF1. The protein encoded by this gene contains a zinc finger domain in the C terminus of the coding region. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SUZ12 Gene

SUZ12 (SUZ12 Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SUZ12 include endometrial stromal sarcoma and endometrial stromal nodule. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Cellular Senescence. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and chromatin binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SUZ12 Gene

  • Polycomb group (PcG) protein. Component of the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, which methylates Lys-9 (H3K9me) and Lys-27 (H3K27me) of histone H3, leading to transcriptional repression of the affected target gene. The PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex may also serve as a recruiting platform for DNA methyltransferases, thereby linking two epigenetic repression systems. Genes repressed by the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex include HOXC8, HOXA9, MYT1 and CDKN2A.

    Size:

    Molecular mass:
    83055 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, which includes EED, EZH2, SUZ12, RBBP4 and RBBP7 and possibly AEBP2. The minimum components required for methyltransferase activity of the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex are EED, EZH2 and SUZ12. Component of the PRC2/EED-EZH1 complex, which includes EED, EZH1, SUZ12, RBBP4 and AEBP2. The PRC2 complex may also interact with DNMT1, DNMT3A, DNMT3B and PHF1 via the EZH2 subunit and with SIRT1 via the SUZ12 subunit. Interacts with WDR77. Interacts with histone H1. Interacts with CDYL. Interacts with ARNTL/BMAL1.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Under hypoxic conditions, the precursor SUZ12 RNA undergoes regulated trans-splicing with the JAZF1 RNA, resulting in a chimeric isoform which may be protective against apoptosis. The chimeric transcript is characterized by JAZF1 exons 1-3 joined to SUZ12 exon 2-16. The chimeric transcript is expressed primarily in the endometrium from late secretory and early proliferative phases of the menstrual cycle, but not in normal myometrium at any phase of the cycle. Its expression is slightly induced by low levels of progesterone, but suppressed by both estrogen and high levels of progesterone (PubMed:18772439).

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving SUZ12 may be a cause of endometrial stromal tumors. Translocation t(7;17)(p15;q21) with JAZF1. The translocation generates the JAZF1-SUZ12 oncogene consisting of the N-terminus part of JAZF1 and the C-terminus part of SUZ12. It is frequently found in all cases of endometrial stromal tumors, except in endometrial stromal sarcomas, where it is rarer. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11371647}.
