Chromosomal protein that binds to methylated DNA. It can bind specifically to a single methyl-CpG pair. It is not influenced by sequences flanking the methyl-CpGs. Mediates transcriptional repression through interaction with histone deacetylase and the corepressor SIN3A. Binds both 5-methylcytosine (5mC) and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC)-containing DNA, with a preference for 5-methylcytosine (5mC) (By similarity).
Cellular Location: Nucleus. Note: Colocalized with methyl-CpG in the genome. Tissue Location: Present in all adult somatic tissues tested. Bone, Brain, Embryonic Tissue, Eye, Heart, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Nerve, Prostate tissues are correlated with this protein. MECP2 also interacts with the following gene(s): BDNF, DNMT1, DNMT3A, IRAK1, NCOR1, SIN3A, SPI1. Angelman Syndrome, Autistic Disorder, Child Development Disorders, Pervasive, Cognition Disorders, Developmental Disabilities, Intellectual Disability, Learning Disorders, Memory Disorders, Rett Syndrome, Seizures are some of the diseases may be linked to Phospho-MeCP2(S80) Antibody Blocking peptide. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
