Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific); unmethylated CpG binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including DNA methylation-dependent heterochromatin assembly; female gamete generation; and histone H3-K4 trimethylation. Predicted to be located in nucleus. Predicted to be part of MLL1/2 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).
