  • Function

    Histone methyltransferase. Methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (H3K4me). H3K4me represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in beta-globin locus transcription regulation by being recruited by NFE2. Acts as a coactivator for estrogen receptor by being recruited by ESR1, thereby activating transcription. 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

    Expressed in most adult tissues, including a variety of hematoipoietic cells, with the exception of the liver.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in MLL2 are the cause of Kabuki syndrome (KABS) [MIM:147920]. It is a congenital mental retardation syndrome with additional features, including postnatal dwarfism, a peculiar facies characterized by long palpebral fissures with eversion of the lateral third of the lower eyelids, a broad and depressed nasal tip, large prominent earlobes, a cleft or high-arched palate, scoliosis, short fifth finger, persistence of fingerpads, radiographic abnormalities of the vertebrae, hands, and hip joints, and recurrent otitis media in infancy.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the histone-lysine methyltransferase family. TRX/MLL subfamily.
    Contains 1 FY-rich C-terminal domain.
