Normal mammalian growth and development are highly dependent on the regulation of the expression and activity of the Myc family of transcription factors. Mxl1-mediated inhibition of Myc activities requires interaction with mammalian Sin3A or Sin3B proteins, which have been purported to act as scaffolds for additional co-repressor factors. The identification of two such Sin3-associated factors, the nuclear receptor co-repressor (N-CoR) and histone deacetylase (HD1), provides a basis for Mxl1/Sin3-induced transcriptional repression and tumour suppression.
