Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include dioxygenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KDM3A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KDM3B Gene
Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates Lys-9 of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate. May have tumor suppressor activity.
