Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have histone binding activity; histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific); and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including eyelid development in camera-type eye; histone methylation; and positive regulation of fibroblast proliferation. Predicted to localize to MLL3/4 complex. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; genitourinary system; limb; nervous system; and neural ectoderm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kleefstra syndrome 2; esophagus squamous cell carcinoma; and squamous cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human KMT2C (lysine methyltransferase 2C).
