GeneCards Summary for SETD7 Gene
SETD7 (SET Domain Containing Lysine Methyltransferase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3. GO annotations related to this gene include p53 binding and protein-lysine N-methyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SETD7 Gene
Histone methyltransferase that specifically monomethylates Lys-4 of histone H3. H3 Lys-4 methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in the transcriptional activation of genes such as collagenase or insulin. Recruited by IPF1/PDX-1 to the insulin promoter, leading to activate transcription. Has also methyltransferase activity toward non-histone proteins such as p53/TP53, TAF10, and possibly TAF7 by recognizing and binding the [KR]-[STA]-K in substrate proteins. Monomethylates Lys-189 of TAF10, leading to increase the affinity of TAF10 for RNA polymerase II. Monomethylates Lys-372 of p53/TP53, stabilizing p53/TP53 and increasing p53/TP53-mediated transcriptional activation.
