  1. A mecp2-null allele mutation zebrafish model is developed and the animals are viable and fertile.

Mouse (Murine) Methyl CpG Binding Protein 2 (Rett Syndrome) (MECP2) interaction partners

  1. Data suggest that newborn Mecp2 null cortical neurons display critical transcriptional defects that lead to reduced neuronal responsiveness, which, in turn, delays and disrupts proper neuronal maturation

  2. absence leads to decreased cortical levels of the GAT-1 GABA transporter, facilitating cortical network hyper-excitability by increasing the activity of cortical GABAB receptors

  3. Knockdown of methyl-CpG-binding protein leads to upregulation of microRNA-137, which in turn represses expression of PTEN protein.

  4. Study demonstrates that the time course of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (show GRIN1 Proteins) maturation is cell-type specific, and a new cell-type specific role for Mecp2 in the development of -methyl-D-aspartate receptor subunit composition.

  5. Data highlight functional hypoconnectivity in the medial prefrontal cortex as a potential substrate for behavioral disruption in Rett syndrome and other disorders associated with reduced expression of Mecp2 in frontal cortical regions.

  6. These findings indicate that tongue heat sensitivity and hypersensitivity are dependent on the expression of transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 which is regulated via MeCP2 signaling in trigeminal ganglion neurons innervating the tongue.

  7. We treated MeCP2-null mice from postnatal-day 28 for two weeks with desipramine, already tested in Rett syndrome , or mirtazapine, an antidepressant with limited side-effects, known to promote GABA release

  8. these results suggested that MeCP2 facilitated Tet3 activity, enhanced expression of pluripotency-related genes, and eventually improved the development of NT embryos.

  9. The molecular basis of variable phenotypic severity among common MECP2 missense mutations causing Rett syndrome has been described.

  10. Study showed that Mecp2 de fi ciency causes a reduced amplitude in the PER2 (show PER2 Proteins) expression rhythms of the suprachiasmatic nucleus providing a new insight into behavioral dysfunction caused by Mecp2 de fi ciency in Rett syndrome.

  2. MECP2 substitutions outside the canonical MeCP2 domains are present in X-linked intellectual disability

  3. We further delineate the phenotype associated with the p.Ala140Val mutation in MECP2 , illustrating a variable expressivity even within a given family, and we compare our patients with previous reported cases in the literature

  4. This is the first large cohort of patients with MECP2 duplication syndrome, including a female, reported in China

  5. The monkeys transmitted both multiple MECP2 genes and social deficits on to a second generation of monkeys, who did not interact as frequently as did normal monkeys

  6. The MECP2 gene is mutated in 80% of patients with classic Rett syndrome, as well as in 40% of those affected by any of its atypical forms

  7. The molecular basis of variable phenotypic severity among common MECP2 missense mutations causing Rett syndrome has been described.

Methyl CpG Binding Protein 2 (Rett Syndrome) (MECP2) Protein Profile

Protein Summary

DNA methylation is the major modification of eukaryotic genomes and plays an essential role in mammalian development. Human proteins MECP2, MBD1, MBD2, MBD3, and MBD4 comprise a family of nuclear proteins related by the presence in each of a methyl-CpG binding domain (MBD). Each of these proteins, with the exception of MBD3, is capable of binding specifically to methylated DNA. MECP2, MBD1 and MBD2 can also repress transcription from methylated gene promoters. In contrast to other MBD family members, MECP2 is X-linked and subject to X inactivation. MECP2 is dispensible in stem cells, but is essential for embryonic development. MECP2 gene mutations are the cause of most cases of Rett syndrome, a progressive neurologic developmental disorder and one of the most common causes of mental retardation in females.
