Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ASH1L Gene
This gene encodes a member of the trithorax group of transcriptional activators. The protein contains four AT hooks, a SET domain, a PHD-finger motif, and a bromodomain. It is localized to many small speckles in the nucleus, and also to cell-cell tight junctions. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ASH1L Gene
ASH1L (Ash1 (Absent, Small, Or Homeotic)-Like (Drosophila)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASH1L include facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy 1. Among its related pathways are Tight junction and Lysine degradation. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific). An important paralog of this gene is EHMT1.
