GeneCards Summary for L3MBTL2 Gene
L3MBTL2 (L(3)Mbt-Like 2 (Drosophila)) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription corepressor activity and methylated histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is SCMH1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for L3MBTL2 Gene
Putative Polycomb group (PcG) protein. PcG proteins maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of genes, probably via a modification of chromatin, rendering it heritably changed in its expressibility. Its association with a chromatin-remodeling complex suggests that it may contribute to prevent expression of genes that trigger the cell into mitosis. Binds to monomethylated and dimethylated Lys-20 on histone H4. Binds histone H3 peptides that are monomethylated or dimethylated on Lys-4, Lys-9 or Lys-27.
