Gene: KDM5A (lysine demethylase 5A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KDM5A
Name: lysine demethylase 5A
CRRD ID: 1313452
Description: Exhibits several functions, including histone demethylase activity (H3-K4 specific); methylated histone binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in histone H3-K4 demethylation; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and regulation of DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Localizes to nucleus. Implicated in ankylosing spondylitis. Biomarker of alopecia areata; breast cancer; lung non-small cell carcinoma; prostate cancer; and stomach carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: [histone H3]-trimethyl-L-lysine(4) demethylase 5A; histone demethylase JARID1A; JARID1A; jumonji, AT rich interactive domain 1A; Jumonji, AT rich interactive domain 1A (RBP2-like); jumonji/ARID domain-containing protein 1A; lysine (K)-specific demethylase 5A; lysine-specific demethylase 5A; RBBP-2; RBBP2; RBP2; retinoblastoma binding protein 2; retinoblastoma-binding protein 2

NCBI Annotation Information: Note: RBP2 (Gene ID: 5948) and KDM5A (Gene ID: 5927) share the RBP2 symbol/alias in common. RBP2 is a widely used alternative name for lysine demethylase 5A (KDM5A), which can be confused with the official symbol for retinol binding protein 2 (RBP2). [03 Jul 2018]
