HMCES (5-Hydroxymethylcytosine (HmC) Binding, ES Cell-Specific) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HMCES Gene
Specifically binds 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC)-containing DNA in stem cells, suggesting that it acts as a specific reader of 5hmC in stem cells (By similarity). May act as a peptidase; experimental evidences are however required to confirm this prediction (PubMed:23945014).
