Entrez Gene Summary for KDM4A Gene

  • This gene is a member of the Jumonji domain 2 (JMJD2) family and encodes a protein containing a JmjN domain, a JmjC domain, a JD2H domain, two TUDOR domains, and two PHD-type zinc fingers. This nuclear protein functions as a trimethylation-specific demethylase, converting specific trimethylated histone residues to the dimethylated form, and as a transcriptional repressor.

GeneCards Summary for KDM4A Gene

KDM4A (Lysine (K)-Specific Demethylase 4A) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin protein ligase binding and histone demethylase activity (H3-K36 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KDM4D.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KDM4A Gene

  • Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates Lys-9 and Lys-36 residues of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 Lys-4, H3 Lys-27 nor H4 Lys-20. Demethylates trimethylated H3 Lys-9 and H3 Lys-36 residue, while it has no activity on mono- and dimethylated residues. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate. Participates in transcriptional repression of ASCL2 and E2F-responsive promoters via the recruitment of histone deacetylases and NCOR1, respectively

  • Isoform 2: Crucial for muscle differentiation, promotes transcriptional activation of the Myog gene by directing the removal of repressive chromatin marks at its promoter. Lacks the N-terminal demethylase domain

O75164

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

KDM4A_HUMAN :
  • O75164
Domain:
  • The 2 Tudor domains recognize and bind methylated histone H3 Lys-4 residue (H3K4me). Double Tudor domain has an interdigitated structure and the unusual fold is required for its ability to bind methylated histone tails. Trimethylated H3 Lys-4 (H3K4me3) is bound in a cage of 3 aromatic residues, 2 of which are from the Tudor domain 2, while the binding specificity is determined by side-chain interactions involving residues from the Tudor domain 1. The Tudor domains are also able to bind trimethylated histone H3 Lys-9 (H3K9me3), di- and trimethylated H4 Lys-20 (H4K20me2 and H4K20me3). Has high affinity for H4K20me2, blocking recruitment of proteins such as TP53BP1.
  • Contains 1 JmjC domain.
  • Contains 1 JmjN domain.
  • Contains 2 Tudor domains.
Family:
  • Belongs to the JHDM3 histone demethylase family.
Similarity:
  • Contains 2 PHD-type zinc fingers.
