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 Demethylase 5D) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KDM5D include Spermatogenic Failure, Y-Linked, 2. 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 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. Involved in transcriptional repression of diverse metastasis-associated genes; in this function seems to cooperate with ZMYND8. Suppresses prostate cancer cell invasion. Regulates androgen receptor (AR) transcriptional activity by demethylating H3K4me3 active transcription marks.
