    2019-5-26 · The histone methyltransferase PRC2 plays a central role in genomic stability and cellular development. Consequently its misregulation has been implicated in several cancers. Recent work has shown that a histone H3 mutant where the PRC2 substrate residue Lys27 is replaced by methionine is also associated with cancer phenotypes and functions as an inhibitor of PRC2.
