  • FunctionHistone methyltransferase involved in left-right axis specification in early development and mitosis. Specifically trimethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me3). H3K9me3 is a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression that recruits HP1 (CBX1, CBX3 and/or CBX5) proteins to methylated histones. Contributes to H3K9me3 in both the interspersed repetitive elements and centromere-associated repeats. Plays a role in chromosome condensation and segregation during mitosis.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Highest expression in heart, testis and ovary.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone-lysine methyltransferase family.
    Contains 1 MBD (methyl-CpG-binding) domain.
    Contains 1 pre-SET domain.
    Contains 1 SET domain.

Thank you for your inquiry. I BLASTed the immunogen sequence of ab5517 against mouse and it only has 55% homology.  We generally say that anything with a greater than 85% homology would be expected to cross-react, so this is quite low.  This antibo...
