  • Function
    S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent histone methyltransferase that specifically methylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3. May function as a DNA-binding transcription factor. Binds to the macrophage-specific TPA-responsive element (MTE) of the HMOX1 (heme oxygenase 1) gene and may act as a transcriptional activator of this gene.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in retinoblastoma cell lines and in brain tumors. Also expressed in a number of other cell lines and in brain, heart, skeletal muscle, liver and spleen. Isoform 1 is expressed in testis at much higher level than isoform 3.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 8 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 SET domain.

  • Rat B50 brain tumor cell extracts were immunoprecipitated with RIZ antibody or preimmune (Liu L. et al. J. Biol. Chem. 1997. 272: 2984.).

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of RIZ1 in adenovirus-transduced tumor cells. Established HCT116 xenograft tumors at day 2 after infection of AdRIZ1, Adnull, or buffer alone were processed for RIZ1 in situ detection (TUNEL) analysis (Jiang G-L. and Huang S. Cancer Res. 2001. 61: 1796.)
