Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific); unmethylated CpG binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including female gamete generation; histone H3-K4 trimethylation; and regulation of histone H3-K4 methylation. Predicted to localize to histone methyltransferase complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; inner cell mass; nervous system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colorectal adenocarcinoma; dystonia; and hepatocellular carcinoma. Orthologous to human KMT2B (lysine methyltransferase 2B).
