Gene: Kmt2a (lysine methyltransferase 2A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kmt2a
Name: lysine methyltransferase 2A
CRRD ID: 1586165
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific); lysine-acetylated histone binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in membrane depolarization and response to potassium ion. Predicted to localize to MLL1 complex and cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute myeloid leukemia; cervical cancer; mixed phenotype acute leukemia; and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Orthologous to human KMT2A (lysine methyltransferase 2A); PARTICIPATES IN DNA modification pathway; histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2A; histone-lysine N-methyltransferase MLL; lysine (K)-specific methyltransferase 2A; Mixed-lineage leukemia (also acute lymphocytic leukemia 1 or trithorax Drosophila gene); Mixed-lineage leukemia (also acute lymphocytic leukemia 1 or tritorax Drosophila gene); Mll; Mll1; Mll_mapped; myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia; myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia (mapped); myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia (trithorax homolog, Drosophila); myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia 1
