C2098-89C
CBX8 (Chromobox Protein Homolog 8, Polycomb 3 Homolog, Pc3, HPC3, Rectachrome 1, PC3, RC1)
Description:
Chromobox homolog 8 (CBX8 or Pc3) is a member of Drosophila Polycomb group gene family. The polycomb group (PcG) genes are essential for maintenance of appropriate expression patterns of developmental master regulators and thus are essential for proper development. Changes in expression of PcG proteins have been associated with cancer. CBX8 is involved in maintaining the transcriptionally repressive state of genes. It modifies chromatin, rendering it heritably changed in its expressibility. Structurally, CBX4 contains 1 chromo domain, which is 40-50aa long.
