Background

BMI-1 is a member of the Polycomb PRC1 complex that is recruited to transcriptionally repressed genes subsequent to histone H3 lysine 27 methylation in order to maintain repression. In the PRC1 complex, BMI-1 is required to stimulate the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity of RNF2/RING2, resulting in the ubiquitylation of histone H2A at lysine 119. BMI-1 acts as an oncogene and cooperates with c-myc in the initiation of lymphoma. High levels of expression of BMI-1 are observed in metastatic melanoma, and BMI-1 has been implicated in several other cancers. BMI-1 is required for hematopoietic stem cell self renewal.
