UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SMYD3 Gene
Histone methyltransferase. Specifically methylates Lys-4 and Lys-5 of histone H3, inducing di- and tri-methylation, but not monomethylation. Plays an important role in transcriptional activation as a member of an RNA polymerase complex. Binds DNA containing 5-CCCTCC-3 or 5-GAGGGG-3 sequences.
