HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11898
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase PRDM9
  1. PR domain zinc finger protein 9
  2. PR domain-containing protein 9
Gene Name PRDM9
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 during meiotic prophase and is essential for proper meiotic progression. Does not have the ability to mono- and dimethylate 'Lys-4' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in the transcriptional activation of genes during early meiotic prophase (By similarity).
Pathways Not Available
S-Adenosylmethionine + L-lysine-[histone] → S-Adenosylhomocysteine + N(6)-methyl-L-lysine-[histone] details
