Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific) and histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K9 specific). Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of intracellular signal transduction; reproductive structure development; and tarsal gland development. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 52. Orthologous to human ASH1L (ASH1 like histone lysine methyltransferase).
