Gene: Ehmt2 (euchromatic histone lysine N-methyltransferase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ehmt2
Name: euchromatic histone lysine N-methyltransferase 2
CRRD ID: 1550173
Description: Exhibits several functions, including C2H2 zinc finger domain binding activity; histone-lysine N-methyltransferase activity; and promoter-specific chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including macromolecule methylation; regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process; and response to cocaine. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; limb; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Orthologous to human EHMT2 (euchromatic histone lysine methyltransferase 2); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; lysine degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
