|PubMed Abstract||The Polycomb group genes are involved in maintaining long term transcriptional repression of the homeotic genes in both Drosophila and mammals. The mouse eed locus encodes the highly conserved ortholog of the Drosophila ESC protein. To test the functional conservation between the two genes, eed was introduced into the fly to determine whether it could rescue the esc mutant phenotype. eed exerted a dominant negative effect on the leg transformation phenotype associated with the esc mutation. This result is interpreted in light of in vitro protein-protein binding data and in vivo polytene chromosome staining indicating the lack of significant interaction between Eed and fly E(Z), a molecular partner of ESC. genesis 26:67-76, 2000|
