  • Function
    Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Preferentially demethylates mono- and dimethylated H3 'Lys-9' residue, with a preference for dimethylated residue, while it has weak or no activity on trimethylated H3 'Lys-9'. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate. Involved in hormone-dependent transcriptional activation, by participating in recruitment to androgen-receptor target genes, resulting in H3 'Lys-9' demethylation and transcriptional activation. Involved in spermatogenesis by regulating expression of target genes such as PRM1 and TMP1 which are required for packaging and condensation of sperm chromatin. Involved in obesity resistance through regulation of metabolic genes such as PPARA and UCP1.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the JHDM2 histone demethylase family.
    Contains 1 JmjC domain.
  • Domain
    The JmjC domain and the C6-type zinc-finger are required for the demethylation activity.
    Leu-Xaa-Xaa-Leu-Leu (LXXLL) motifs are known to mediate the association with nuclear receptors.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Nuclear in round spermatids. When spermatids start to elongate, localizes to the cytoplasm where it forms distinct foci which disappear in mature spermatozoa.

  • ab75620, at a dilution of 1/50, staining KDM3A / JHDM2A in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human hepatocarcinoma tissue by Immunohistochemistry. A peroxidase conjugated secondary antibody was then used, followed by DAB staining.
  • ICC/IF image of ab75620 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab75620, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
