Description:
The nuclear receptor co-repressor 2 () is a transcriptional coregulatory protein which contains several nuclear receptor interacting domains. In addition, NCOR2 appears to recruit histone deacetylases to DNA promoter regions. Hence NCOR2 assists nuclear receptors in the down regulation of target gene expression. NCOR2 is also referred to as a silencing mediator for retinoid or thyroid-hormone receptors (SMRT) receptor-associating cofactor 1 (TRAC-1).

Function

NCOR2/SMRT is a transcriptional coregulatory protein which contains several modulatory functional domains including multiple autonomous repression domains as well as two or three C-terminal nuclear receptor interacting domains. NCOR2/SMRT serves as a repressive coregulatory factor (corepressor) for multiple transcription factor pathways. In this regard, NCOR2/SMRT functions as a platform protein, facilitating the recruitment of histone deacetylases to the DNA promoters bound by its interacting transcription factors.

Discovery

SMRT was initially cloned and characterized in the laboratory of Dr. Ronald M. Evans at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. In another early...
