GeneCards Summary for C14orf169 Gene
C14orf169 (Chromosome 14 Open Reading Frame 169) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include iron ion binding and histone demethylase activity (H3-K36 specific).
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for C14orf169 Gene
Oxygenase that can act as both a histone lysine demethylase and a ribosomal histidine hydroxylase. Specifically demethylates Lys-4 (H3K4me) and Lys-36 (H3K36me) of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Preferentially demethylates trimethylated H3 Lys-4 (H3K4me3) and monomethylated H3 Lys-4 (H3K4me1) residues, while it has weaker activity for dimethylated H3 Lys-36 (H3K36me2). Also catalyzes the hydroxylation of 60S ribosomal protein L8 on His-216. Acts as a regulator of osteoblast differentiation via its interaction with SP7/OSX by demethylating H3K4me and H3K36me, thereby inhibiting SP7/OSX-mediated promoter activation (By similarity). May also play a role in ribosome biogenesis and in the replication or remodeling of certain heterochromatic region. Participates in MYC-induced transcriptional activation.
