  • Function
    Histone methyltransferase. Methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in beta-globin locus transcription regulation by being recruited by NFE2. Plays an important role in controlling bulk H3K4me during oocyte growth and preimplantation development. Required during the transcriptionally active period of oocyte growth for the establishment and/or maintenance of bulk H3K4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), global transcriptional silencing that preceeds resumption of meiosis, oocyte survival and normal zygotic genome activation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Highest levels in testis. Also found in brain, bone marrow, heart, muscle, kidney, placenta, spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary, intestine, colon, peripheral blood lymphocytes and pancreas. Often amplified in pancreatic carcinomas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. TRX/MLL subfamily.
    Contains 3 A.T hook DNA-binding domains.
    Contains 1 CXXC-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 FYR C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 FYR N-terminal domain.
    Contains 3 PHD-type zinc fingers.
