GeneCards Summary for HMCES Gene

HMCES (5-Hydroxymethylcytosine Binding, ES Cell Specific) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include peptidase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HMCES Gene

  • Specifically binds 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC)-containing DNA in stem cells, suggesting that it acts as a specific reader of 5hmC in stem cells (By similarity). May act as a peptidase; experimental evidences are however required to confirm this prediction (PubMed:23945014).
