GeneCards Summary for MPHOSPH8 Gene
MPHOSPH8 (M-Phase Phosphoprotein 8) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include methylated histone binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MPHOSPH8 Gene
Involved in transcriptional regulation. Specifically recognizes and binds methylated Lys-9 of histone H3 (H3K9me) and promotes DNA methylation by recruiting DNMT3A to target CpG sites; these can be situated within the coding region of the gene. Mediates down-regulation of CDH1 expression.
