Here we identify the oncoprotein DEK, an abundant nuclear protein with a previously enigmatic in vivo function, as a Suppressor of Variegation [Su(var)] that is crucial to global heterochromatin integrity. We show that DEK interacts directly with Heterochromatin Protein 1 α (HP1α) and markedly enhances its binding to trimethylated H3K9 (H3K9me3), which is key for maintaining heterochromatic regions. Loss of Dek in Drosophila leads to a Su(var) phenotype and global reduction in heterochromatin. Thus, these findings show that DEK is a key factor in maintaining the balance between heterochromatin and euchromatin in vivo.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-09T11:30:19Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Schneider, Robert</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Mathew, Veena</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-09T11:30:19Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38816"/> <dc:contributor>Kappes, Ferdinand</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Chinnaiyan, Arul M.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Luger, Karolin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schneider, Robert</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Markovitz, David M.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Khodadoust, Michael S.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Zhang, Ling</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Yu, Jindan</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kappes, Ferdinand</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>The DEK oncoprotein is a Su(var) that is essential to heterochromatin integrity</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2011-04-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Chinnaiyan, Arul M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
