BMI1 is a 326 amino acid containing protooncogene belonging to the polycomb gene family with a RING-type zinc finger domain. A transcription factor and a senescence regulator, BMI1 is a component of the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1 complex, required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. An important role of BMI1 has been reported in regulating proliferation of stem cells and tumor cells in diverse adult epithelial tissues involved in human colorectal carcinogenesis by repressing the INK4a/ARF proteins (CDKN2A). This protein also plays an essential role in the generation of self-renewing adult hematopoietic stem cells and in the maintenance and expansion of immature granule cell precursors. BMI1 cooperates with the MYC oncogene to produce B-lymphomas. Ubiquitous expression is seen in most of the tissues.
