  • Function
    Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4. H4 'Lys-20' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in pericentric heterochromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the establishment of constitutive heterochromatin in these regions. SUV420H1 is targeted to histone H3 via its interaction with RB1 family proteins (RB1, RBL1 and RBL2).
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. Suvar4-20 subfamily.
    Contains 1 SET domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Chromosome. Associated with pericentric heterochromatin. CBX1 and CBX5 are required for the localization to pericentric heterochromatin.

  • Anti-KMT5C/SUV4-20h2 antibody - ChIP Grade (ab91224) at 1/50 dilution + Mouse stomach tissue lysate at 35 µg

    Predicted band size : 52 kDa
  • Chromatin from cells was immunoprecipitated with IgG (negative control) or SUV420H2 antibodies (ab91224), and DNA was extracted from the immunoprecipitated samples. Immunoprecipitated DNA was subjected to real-time PCR with primer sets that span the TMS1 genomic regions and is expressed as a percentage of input DNA. Data are mean ± S.D. from a representative experiment from triplicate determinants.
