"HELLS is a SNF2 ATPase family protein, required for de novo DNA methylation of repetitive elements and developmentally programmed genes through interaction with DNMT3b (7). Among six groups of SNF2 family proteins, HELLS belongs to a SNF2-like subfamily, including SMARCA2/4 (BRM/BRG1), CHD3–5 (Mi-2), CHD1/2, CHD6–9, SMARCA1/5 (SNF2L/SNF2h, ISWI) and ALC1 (8). "
