HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11961
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name N-lysine methyltransferase SMYD2
  1. HSKM-B
  2. Histone methyltransferase SMYD2
  3. Lysine N-methyltransferase 3C
  4. SET and MYND domain-containing protein 2
Gene Name SMYD2
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Protein-lysine N-methyltransferase that methylates both histones and non-histone proteins. Specifically methylates histone H3 'Lys-4' (H3K4me) and dimethylates histone H3 'Lys-36' (H3K36me2). Has also methyltransferase activity toward non-histone proteins such as p53/TP53 and RB1. Monomethylates 'Lys-370' of p53/TP53, leading to decreased DNA-binding activity and subsequent transcriptional regulation activity of p53/TP53. Monomethylates 'Lys-860' of RB1/RB.
Pathways Not Available
S-Adenosylmethionine + L-lysine-[histone] → S-Adenosylhomocysteine + N(6)-methyl-L-lysine-[histone] details
