EGR2 is required for peripheral nerve cell myelination in Schwann cells where it activates some target genes and represses others (Topilko et al, 1999; Zorick et al, 1996; Le et al, 2005; Le Blanc et al, 2005). ID2 and ID4 were identified as targets of EGR2-mediated repression during peripheral nerve myelination (Mager et al, 2008). EGR2 represses ID2 and ID4 gene expression by recruiting NAB2 and the NURD chromatin remodelling complex (Mager et al, 2008, Srinivasan et al, 2006).
