  • FunctionHistone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-9' and 'Lys-36' residues of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 'Lys-4', H3 'Lys-27' nor H4 'Lys-20'. Demethylates trimethylated H3 'Lys-9' and H3 'Lys-36' residue, while it has no activity on mono- and dimethylated residues. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate. Participates in transcriptional repression of ASCL2 and E2F-responsive promoters via the recruitment of histone deacetylases and NCOR1, respectively.
    Isoform 2: Crucial for muscle differentiation, promotes transcriptional activation of the Myog gene by directing the removal of repressive chromatin marks at its promoter. Lacks the N-terminal demethylase domain.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the JHDM3 histone demethylase family.
    Contains 1 C2HC pre-PHD-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 JmjC domain.
    Contains 1 JmjN domain.
    Contains 2 PHD-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 2 Tudor domains.
  • DomainThe 2 Tudor domains recognize and bind methylated histone H3 'Lys-4' residue (H3K4me). Double Tudor domain has an interdigitated structure and the unusual fold is required for its ability to bind methylated histone tails. Trimethylated H3 'Lys-4' (H3K4me3) is bound in a cage of 3 aromatic residues, 2 of which are from the Tudor domain 2, while the binding specificity is determined by side-chain interactions involving residues from the Tudor domain 1. The Tudor domains are also able to bind trimethylated histone H3 'Lys-9' (H3K9me3), di- and trimethylated H4 'Lys-20' (H4K20me2 and H4K20me3). Has high affinity for H4K20me2, blocking recruitment of proteins such as TP53BP1.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitinated by RNF8 and RNF168 following DNA damage, leading to its degradation. Degradation promotes accessibility of H4K20me2 mark for DNA repair protein TP53BP1, which is then recruited.
