FunctionDioxygenase that catalyzes the conversion of methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC). Plays a role in embryonic stem (ES) cell maintenance and inner cell mass (ICM) cell specification, possibly by participating in DNA demethylation. Specifically binds 5mC, a minor base in mammalian DNA found in repetitive DNA elements that is crucial for retrotransposon silencing and mammalian development. 5mC is present in ES cells and is enriched in the brain, especially in Purkinje neurons. The clear function of hmC is still unclear but it could constitute an intermediate component in cytosine demethylation. A role of hmC in DNA demethylation is supported by TET1 function in ES cell maintenance, which is required to prevent NANOG hypermethylation and maintain NANOG expression in ES cells.
Tissue specificityExpressed in fetal heart, lung and brain, and in adult skeletal muscle, thymus and ovary. Not detected in adult heart, lung or brain.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving TET1 may be a cause of acute leukemias. Translocation t(10;11)(q22;q23) with MLL. This is a rare chromosomal translocation 5' MLL-TET1 3'.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TET family.
Contains 1 CXXC-type zinc finger.
