This gene encodes a member of the Polycomb group proteins. These proteins form the Polycomb repressive complexes which are involved in transcriptional repression. The encoded protein binds histone peptides that are monomethylated at lysine residues and may be involved in regulating homeotic gene expression during development.

SCML2 has several biochemical functions, for example, DNA binding, transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by SCML2 itself. We selected most functions SCML2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with SCML2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
