Gene: Prdm8 (PR/SET domain 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Prdm8
Name: PR/SET domain 8
CRRD ID: 1311628
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity; histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K9 specific); and transcription corepressor activity. Predicted to be involved in histone H3-K9 methylation; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and neurogenesis. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in progressive myoclonus epilepsy 10. Orthologous to human PRDM8 (PR/SET domain 8); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC305198; PR domain 8; PR domain containing 8; PR domain zinc finger protein 8
