Previous Symbols for PRMT8 Gene
Arginine methylation is a widespread posttranslational modification mediated by arginine methyltransferases, such as PRMT8. Arginine methylation is involved in a number of cellular processes, including DNA repair, RNA transcription, signal transduction, protein compartmentalization, and possibly protein translation (Lee et al., 2005 [PubMed 16051612]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for PRMT8 Gene
PRMT8 (Protein Arginine Methyltransferase 8) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRMT6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRMT8 Gene
Membrane-associated arginine methyltransferase that can both catalyze the formation of omega-N monomethylarginine (MMA) and asymmetrical dimethylarginine (aDMA). Able to mono- and dimethylate EWS protein; however its precise role toward EWS remains unclear as it still interacts with fully methylated EWS.
