DNA methylation can help regulate transcriptional silencing via repressive transcription complexes, which include methyl-CpG-binding domain protein and Histone deacetylases (HDACs) DNMT1. This core enzyme for mammalian DNA methylation can also establish a repressive transcription complex consisting of DNMT1, HDAC2 and DMAP1. DMAP1 can interact directly with the transcriptional corepressor TSG101. The DNMT1-DMAP1 exists throughout the S-phase; HDAC2 joind DNMT1 and DMAP1 only during Late S phase. This provides a regulated means to deacetylate heterochromatin following replication.
