EZH2 gene contains several E2F binding sites in its promoter, and these E2F-binding sites are needed for the responsiveness of EZH2 promoter to E2F1, E2F2 and E2F3. Only E2F1 with intact DNA-binding domain stimulates EZH2 transcription. Binding of E2F3 to EZH2 promoter was directly demonstrated by ChIP (Bracken et al. 2003).
