Target Data

Function Recognizes and binds histone H3 tails methylated at 'Lys-9', leading to epigenetic repression. Involved in the repression of the silent mating-type loci MAT2 and MAT3. May compact MAT2/3 into a heterochromatin-like conformation which represses the transcription of these silent cassettes.
Gene References into Functions
  1. rather than promoting maintenance and spreading of heterochromatin, Swi6 appears to limit these processes and appropriately confine heterochromatin. PMID: 26438724
  2. binding of HP1 protein, Swi6, to methylated nucleosomes drives a switch from an auto-inhibited state to a spreading-competent state, where H3K9-methylated heterochromatin spreads to adjacent regions PMID: 23485968
  3. HP1(Swi6) mediates the recognition and destruction of heterochromatic RNA transcripts PMID: 22683269
  4. Mutations in Swi6 that disrupt cdc6 protein interaction disrupt silencing and delay replication in the centromere. PMID: 21239883
  5. Our analyses suggest that Swi6/HP1 recruits opposing chromatin-modifying activities, the balancing of which is crucial for heterochromatin maintenance. PMID: 16762840
  6. Binding of Swi6 within approx 50kb of the telomere occurs less in partial aneuploid strains compared to euploid strains of S. pombe. PMID: 18285637
  7. These results provide insights into the regulation of siRNA action and reveal roles for cis-dsRNA synthesis and HP1 in siRNA-mediated heterochromatin assembly. PMID: 18657501
  8. casein kinase II (CK2) phosphorylated Swi6 PMID: 19136623
  9. Msc1, is a critical factor required for proper cell fate determination in S. pombe. PMID: 19164572
  10. Swi6, an S. pombe counterpart of heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1), is required for early replication of the pericentromeric region and the mat locus. PMID: 19182789
  11. These analyses suggest that among other functions, HP1 proteins associate with chromatin-modifying factors that in turn cooperate to assemble repressive chromatin; thus, precluding accessibility of underlying DNA sequences to transcriptional machinery. PMID: 19443688
