Function for SMYD1 Gene

Molecular function for SMYD1 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + L-lysine-[histone] = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N(6)-methyl-L-lysine-[histone]
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Methylates histone H3 at Lys-4 (H3K4me), seems able to perform both mono-, di-, and trimethylation. Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Essential for cardiomyocyte differentiation and cardiac morphogenesis
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
By serum response factor SRF and myogenin. SRF binds to the CArG site and MYOG binds to the E-box element on SMYD1 promoter.
