GeneCards Summary for PRMT2 Gene

PRMT2 (Protein Arginine Methyltransferase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RB in Cancer and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRMT6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRMT2 Gene

  • Arginine methyltransferase that methylates the guanidino nitrogens of arginyl residues in proteins such as STAT3, FBL, histone H4. Acts as a coactivator (with NCOA2) of the androgen receptor (AR)-mediated transactivation. Acts as a coactivator (with estrogen) of estrogen receptor (ER)-mediated transactivation. Enhances PGR, PPARG, RARA-mediated transactivation. May inhibit NF-kappa-B transcription and promote apoptosis. Represses E2F1 transcriptional activity (in a RB1-dependent manner). May be involved in growth regulation.
