Functioni

Transcriptional repressor which binds neuron-restrictive silencer element (NRSE) and represses neuronal gene transcription in non-neuronal cells. Restricts the expression of neuronal genes by associating with two distinct corepressors, mSin3 and CoREST, which in turn recruit histone deacetylase to the promoters of REST-regulated genes. Mediates repression by recruiting the BHC complex at RE1/NRSE sites which acts by deacetylating and demethylating specific sites on histones, thereby acting as a chromatin modifier (PubMed:9454838). Transcriptional repression by REST-CDYL via the recruitment of histone methyltransferase EHMT2 may be important in transformation suppression (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in the brain, with the highest levels in the neurons of hippocampus, pons/medulla and midbrain.

Developmental stagei

Levels decrease during brain development.1 Publication

Inductioni

Up-regulated by kainic acid.1 Publication

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Interacts with SIN3A, SIN3B and RCOR1. Interacts with CDYL. Interacts with EHMT1 and EHMT2 only in the presence of CDYL. Part of a complex containing at least CDYL, REST, WIZ, SETB1, EHMT1 and EHMT2. Interacts (via zinc-finger DNA-binding domain) with ZFP90 (via N- and C-termini); the interaction inhibits REST repressor activity.By similarity
