NCOR2, Nuclear receptor corepressor 2
Also Known as
NCOR2_HUMAN, NCOR2, CTG26
Transcriptional corepressor (PubMed:20812024). Mediates the transcriptional repression activity of some nuclear receptors by promoting chromatin condensation, thus preventing access of the basal transcription. Isoform 1 and isoform 4 have different affinities for different nuclear receptors. Involved in the regulation BCL6-dependent of the germinal center (GC) reactions, mainly through the control of the GC B-cells proliferation and survival. Recruited by ZBTB7A to the androgen response elements/ARE on target genes, negatively regulates androgen receptor signaling and androgen-induced cell proliferation (PubMed:20812024). Forms a large corepressor complex that contains SIN3A/B and histone deacetylases HDAC1 and HDAC2. This complex associates with the thyroid (TR) and the retinoid acid receptors (RAR) in the absence of ligand, and may stabilize their interaction with TFIIB. Interacts directly with RARA in the absence of ligand; the interaction represses RARA activity. Interacts (isoform SMRT) with HDAC10. Interacts with MINT. Component of the N-Cor repressor complex, at least composed of NCOR1, NCOR2, HDAC3, TBL1X, TBL1R, CORO2A and GPS2 (PubMed:10809664, PubMed:10944117, PubMed:11931768, PubMed:19858209, PubMed:21240272). Interacts with CBFA2T3 and ATXN1L. Interacts with RARB; the interaction is weak and does not repress RARB transactivational activity. Interacts with HDAC7 and C1D. Interacts with NR4A2; this interaction increases in the absence of PITX3. Interacts with BCL6 (via the BTB domain), required for BCL6 transcriptional repressor activity on a subset of target genes. Forms ternary complexes with BCOR and BCL6 on target gene promoters but, on enhancer elements, interacts with BCL6 and HDAC3 to repress proximal gene expression. May interact with DEAF1. Interacts with RXRA. Interacts with MECP2 (By similarity). Interacts with ZBTB7A (PubMed:20812024). Interacts with AR (PubMed:20812024).
