This gene encodes an integral core subunit of the SET1/MLL family of H3K4 methyltransferases. The encoded protein directly controls cell cycle regulators and plays an important role in the proliferation and differentiation of human hematopoietic progenitor cells. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]
GeneCards Summary for DPY30 Gene
DPY30 (Dpy-30 Histone Methyltransferase Complex Regulatory Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DPY30 include Arthrogryposis, Distal, Type 5 and Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and PKMTs methylate histone lysines. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and identical protein binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DPY30 Gene
As part of the MLL1/MLL complex, involved in the methylation of histone H3 at 'Lys-4', particularly trimethylation. Histone H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. May play some role in histone H3 acetylation. In a teratocarcinoma cell, plays a crucial role in retinoic acid-induced differentiation along the neural lineage, regulating gene induction and H3 'Lys-4' methylation at key developmental loci. May also play an indirect or direct role in endosomal transport.
