UniProtKB description:  Regulator of histone methyltransferase complexes that plays an essential role in embryonic development, including heart and liver development, neural tube fusion process and hematopoiesis (PubMed:20075857). Acts as an accessory subunit for the core PRC2 (Polycomb repressive complex 2) complex, which mediates histone H3K27 (H3K27me3) trimethylation on chromatin (PubMed:20075857, PubMed:29499137, PubMed:31959557). Binds DNA and mediates the recruitment of the PRC2 complex to target genes in embryonic stem cells, thereby playing a key role in stem cell differentiation and normal embryonic development (PubMed:20075857). In cardiac cells, it is required to repress expression of cyclin-D1 (CCND1) by activating methylation of 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me) by the GLP1/EHMT1 and G9a/EHMT2 histone methyltransferases (By similarity). Also acts as a transcriptional repressor of ANF via its interaction with GATA4 and NKX2-5 (By similarity). Participates in the negative regulation of cell proliferation signaling (By similarity). Does not have histone demethylase activity (By similarity).
