  • Function

    Probable histone methyltransferase (By similarity). May act as a transcription regulator that binds DNA and suppresses IL5 transcription.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving WHSC1 is a cause of multiple myeloma tumors. Translocation t(4;14)(p16.3;q32.3) with IgH.
    Note=WHSC1 is located in the Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) critical region. WHS results from by sub-telomeric deletions in the short arm of chromosome 4. WHSC1 is deleted in every case, however deletion of linked genes contributes to both the severity of the core characteristics and the presence of the additional syndromic problems.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the histone-lysine methyltransferase family. SET2 subfamily.
    Contains 1 AWS domain.
    Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 4 PHD-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 post-SET domain.

  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localization
