HMCES [ENSP00000372955]

Embryonic stem cell-specific 5-hydroxymethylcytosine-binding protein; Specifically binds 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC)- containing DNA in stem cells, suggesting that it acts as a specific reader of 5hmC in stem cells (By similarity). May act as a peptidase; experimental evidences are however required to confirm this prediction.
