Notch Represses Transcription by PRC2 Recruitment to the Ternary Complex.


PMID 28584023

Abstract

It is well established that Notch functions as a transcriptional activator through the formation of a ternary complex that comprises Notch, Maml, and CSL. This ternary complex then serves to recruit additional transcriptional cofactors that link to higher order transcriptional complexes. The mechanistic details of these events remain unclear. This report reveals that the Notch ternary complex can direct the formation of a repressor complex to terminate gene expression of select target genes. Herein, it is demonstrated that
