Gene: PRMT8 (protein arginine methyltransferase 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PRMT8
Name: protein arginine methyltransferase 8
Description: Exhibits S-adenosyl-L-methionine binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and protein-arginine N-methyltransferase activity. Involved in histone methylation; peptidyl-arginine methylation, to asymmetrical-dimethyl arginine; and protein homooligomerization. Localizes to the anchored component of the cytoplasmic side of the plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: arginine methyltransferase 8; heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein methyltransferase-like protein 4; HMT1 hnRNP methyltransferase-like 3; HMT1 hnRNP methyltransferase-like 4; HRMT1L3; HRMT1L4; protein arginine N-methyltransferase 4; protein arginine N-methyltransferase 8
