GeneCards Summary for ASH2L Gene
ASH2L (Ash2 (Absent, Small, Or Homeotic)-Like (Drosophila)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription regulatory region DNA binding and histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific).
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASH2L Gene
Component of the Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates Lys-4 of histone H3, but not if the neighboring Lys-9 residue is already methylated. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at Lys-4 of histone H3. May function as a transcriptional regulator. May play a role in hematopoiesis.
