Summaries for KMT2B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KMT2B Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which contains multiple domains including a CXXC zinc finger, three PHD zinc fingers, two FY-rich domains, and a SET (suppressor of variegation, enhancer of zeste, and trithorax) domain. The SET domain is a conserved C-terminal domain that characterizes proteins of the MLL (mixed-lineage leukemia) family. This gene is ubiquitously expressed in adult tissues. It is also amplified in solid tumor cell lines, and may be involved in human cancer. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported for this gene, however, the full length nature of the shorter transcript is not known.

GeneCards Summary for KMT2B Gene

KMT2B (Lysine Methyltransferase 2B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KMT2B include Corneal Staphyloma and Myeloid/Lymphoid Or Mixed Lineage Leukemia. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and PKMTs methylate histone lysines. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KMT2A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KMT2B Gene

  • Histone methyltransferase. Methylates Lys-4 of histone H3. H3 Lys-4 methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in beta-globin locus transcription regulation by being recruited by NFE2. Plays an important role in controlling bulk H3K4me during oocyte growth and preimplantation development. Required during the transcriptionally active period of oocyte growth for the establishment and/or maintenance of bulk H3K4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), global transcriptional silencing that preceeds resumption of meiosis, oocyte survival and normal zygotic genome activation.
