Family relationships


Polycomb group proteins are transcriptional repressors that control processes ranging from the maintenance of cell fate decisions and stem cell pluripotency in animals to the control of flowering time in plants. Additional sex combs (Asx) is a member of the polycomb group which is required for maintenance of stable repression of homeotic genes during Drosophila development [PMID: 9477319, PMID: 20436459].
