Gene: KDM2A (lysine demethylase 2A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KDM2A
Name: lysine demethylase 2A
CRRD ID: 1319753
Description: Exhibits histone demethylase activity (H3-K36 specific); unmethylated CpG binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including double-strand break repair via nonhomologous end joining; histone H3-K36 demethylation; and regulation of gene expression. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin. Implicated in lung non-small cell carcinoma. Biomarker of lung non-small cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
