Gene: SUV39H2 (suppressor of variegation 3-9 homolog 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SUV39H2
Name: suppressor of variegation 3-9 homolog 2
CRRD ID: 1315884
Description: Exhibits S-adenosyl-L-methionine binding activity; histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K9 specific); and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in cellular response to hypoxia; chromatin organization; and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to chromatin; PARTICIPATES IN homocysteine metabolic pathway; methionine cycle/metabolic pathway; histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2-hydroxypropanoic acid; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: FLJ23414; H3-K9-HMTase 2; histone H3-K9 methyltransferase 2; histone-lysine N-methyltransferase SUV39H2; KMT1B; lysine N-methyltransferase 1B; su(var)3-9 homolog 2
