The Rett syndrome-causing MECP2 T158A mutant is unable to bind to 5mC-DNA (DNA containing 5-methylcytosine) and has reduced protein stability. While MECP2 T158A can bind to the SIN3A complex, it is unable to bind to the promoter of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene (Goffin et al. 2012).
