GeneCards Summary for KDM4B Gene
KDM4B (Lysine Demethylase 4B) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and DNA Double Strand Break Response. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include dioxygenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KDM4C.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for KDM4B Gene
Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3, thereby playing a role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 'Lys-4', H3 'Lys-27', H3 'Lys-36' nor H4 'Lys-20'. Only able to demethylate trimethylated H3 'Lys-9', with a weaker activity than KDM4A, KDM4C and KDM4D. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate.
