Gene: KDM4B (lysine demethylase 4B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KDM4B
Name: lysine demethylase 4B
Description: Exhibits histone demethylase activity (H3-K36 specific) and histone demethylase activity (H3-K9 specific). Involved in histone H3-K36 demethylation and histone H3-K9 demethylation. Localizes to cytosol and nucleoplasm. Implicated in breast cancer; colorectal cancer; malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor; and stomach cancer. Biomarker of several diseases, including alopecia areata; lung cancer; medulloblastoma; prostate cancer; and stomach cancer; PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 17beta-hydroxy-5alpha-androstan-3-one; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
