      Background InformationNRSF (neuron-restrictive silencer factor, also designated XBR and REST for RE1-silencing factor) is a silencer protein that binds the DNA sequence element NRSE (neuron-restrictive silencer element). The binding of NRSF to the NRSE represses neuronal gene transcription in non-neuronal cells. Although NRSF is most highly expressed in non-neural tissues, it is also expressed in developing neurons and at low levels in the brain. NRSF contains nine zinc finger domains, but also exists as a C-terminally truncated form produced by alternative splicing. This variant, REST4, contains five of the zinc-finger domains and weakly binds DNA, yet is transported to the nucleus. NRSF associates with mSin3 and HDAC in ventricular myocytes, suggesting a role for NRSF outside the nervous system. Down-regulation of NRSF, which normally occurs upon neural differentiation, is necessary for the proper development of certain classes of neurons. NRSF is required to repress neuronal gene expression in vivo, in both extra-neural and undifferentiated neural tissue.

      Key Applications
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesUpdated information-Rest is glycosylated. From http://amsdottorato.cib.unibo.it/687/
      From the summary:
      "Finally, the glycosylation pattern of the REST protein was analysed, moving from the observation that the molecular weight calculated on REST sequence is about 116 kDa but using western blotting this transcription factor appears to have distinct apparent molecular weight (see Table 1.1): this difference could be explained by post-translational modifications of the proteins, like glycosylation. In fact recently, several studies underlined the importance of O-glycosylation in modulating transcriptional silencing, protein phosphorylation, protein degradation by proteasome and protein–protein interactions [Julenius et al., 2005; Zachara and Hart, 2006]. Deglycosilating analysis showed that REST protein in SH-SY5Y and HEK293 cells is Oglycosylated and not N-glycosylated. Moreover, using several combination of deglycosilating enzymes it is possible to hypothesize the presence of Gal-β(1-3)-GalNAc residues on the endogenous REST, while β(1-4)-linked galactose residues may be present on recombinant REST protein expressed in HEK293 cells. However, the O-glycosylation process produces an immense multiplicity of chemical structures and monosaccharides must be sequentially hydrolyzed by a series of exoglycosidase. Further experiments are needed to characterize all the post-translational modification of the transcription factor REST." In particular the authors show that REST migrates at 200kd in SH-SY5Y cells.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes a transcriptional repressor which represses neuronal genes in non-neuronal tissues. It is a member of the Kruppel-type zinc finger transcription factor family. It represses transcription by binding a DNA sequence element called the neuron-restrictive silencer element. The protein is also found in undifferentiated neuronal progenitor cells, and it is thought that this repressor may act as a master negative regular of neurogenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described; however, their full length nature has not been determined.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: Q13127 # Transcriptional repressor which binds neuron-restrictive silencer element (NRSE) and represses neuronal gene transcription in non-neuronal cells. Restricts the expression of neuronal genes by associating with two distinct corepressors, mSin3 and CoREST, which in turn recruit histone deacetylase to the promoters of REST-regulated genes. Mediates repression by recruiting the BHC complex at RE1/NRSE sites which acts by deacetylating and demethylating specific sites on histones, thereby acting as a chromatin modifier.

      SUBUNIT: Interacts with SIN3A, SIN3B and RCOR1.
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Probable).
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Ubiquitous. Expressed at higher levels in the tissues of the lymphocytic compartment, including spleen, thymus, peripheral blood lymphocytes and ovary.
