Cell fate determination in the early mammalian embryo is regulated by multiple mechanisms. Recently, genes involved in vesicular trafficking have been shown to play an important role in cell fate choice, although the regulation of their expression remains poorly understood. Here we demonstrate for the first time that multiple endocytosis associated genes (EAGs) are repressed through a novel, dual mechanism in mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs). This involves the action of the Polycomb Repressive Complex, PRC2, as well as post-transcriptional regulation by the ESC-specific cell cycle-regulating (ESCC) family of microRNAs. This repression is relieved upon differentiation. Forced expression of EAGs in mESCs results in a decrease in pluripotency, highlighting the importance of dual repression in cell fate regulation. We propose that endocytosis is critical for cell fate choice, and dual repression may function to tightly regulate levels of endocytic genes.
