HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11973
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Methylcytosine dioxygenase TET2
Synonyms Not Available
Gene Name TET2
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Catalyzes the conversion of methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC). Plays an important role in myelopoiesis. The clear function of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC) is still unclear but it may influence chromatin structure and recruit specific factors or may constitute an intermediate component in cytosine demethylation.
Pathways Not Available
DNA 5-methylcytosine + Oxoglutaric acid + Oxygen → DNA 5-hydroxymethylcytosine + Succinic acid + CO(2) details
