This gene is a member of the myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) family and encodes a nuclear protein with an AT hook DNA-binding domain, a DHHC-type zinc finger, six PHD-type zinc fingers, a SET domain, a post-SET domain and a RING-type zinc finger. This protein is a member of the ASC-2/NCOA6 complex (ASCOM), which possesses histone methylation activity and is involved in transcriptional coactivation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KMT2C Gene
KMT2C (Lysine Methyltransferase 2C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KMT2C include Kleefstra Syndrome 2 and Kleefstra Syndrome Due To A Point Mutation. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Pathways Affected in Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KMT2D.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for KMT2C Gene
Histone methyltransferase that methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (PubMed:22266653). H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Central component of the MLL2/3 complex, a coactivator complex of nuclear receptors, involved in transcriptional coactivation. KMT2C/MLL3 may be a catalytic subunit of this complex. May be involved in leukemogenesis and developmental disorder.
