GeneCards Summary for ASH2L Gene
ASH2L (ASH2 Like, Histone Lysine Methyltransferase Complex Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASH2L include Alacrima, Achalasia, And Mental Retardation Syndrome and Disease Of Mental Health. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transcription regulatory region DNA binding and histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific).
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ASH2L Gene
Transcriptional regulator (PubMed:12670868). Component or associated component of some histone methyltransferase complexes which regulates transcription through recruitment of those complexes to gene promoters (PubMed:19131338). Component of the Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, but not if the neighboring 'Lys-9' residue is already methylated (PubMed:19556245). As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (PubMed:19556245). May play a role in hematopoiesis (PubMed:12670868). In association with RBBP5 and WDR5, stimulates the histone methyltransferase activities of KMT2A, KMT2B, KMT2C, KMT2D, SETD1A and SETD1B (PubMed:21220120, PubMed:22266653).
