This gene encodes a protein containing zinc finger domains. A short peptide derived from this protein is a minor histocompatibility antigen which can lead to graft rejection of male donor cells in a female recipient. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009]
GeneCards Summary for KDM5D Gene
KDM5D (Lysine (K)-Specific Demethylase 5D) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KDM5D include y chromosome infertility. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity, acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen, 2-oxoglutarate as one donor, and incorporation of one atom each of oxygen into both donors and histone demethylase activity (H3-K4 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KDM5C.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KDM5D Gene
Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates Lys-4 of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 Lys-9, H3 Lys-27, H3 Lys-36, H3 Lys-79 or H4 Lys-20. Demethylates trimethylated and dimethylated but not monomethylated H3 Lys-4. May play a role in spermatogenesis.
