Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including histone binding activity; histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific); and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in chromatin organization; in utero embryonic development; and oocyte growth. Predicted to localize to the MLL3/4 complex. Used to study Kabuki syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kabuki syndrome and esophagus squamous cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human KMT2D (lysine methyltransferase 2D).
