Gene: DNMT3A (DNA methyltransferase 3 alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DNMT3A
Name: DNA methyltransferase 3 alpha
Description: CpG methylation is an epigenetic modification that is important for embryonic development, imprinting, and X-chromosome inactivation. Studies in mice have demonstrated that DNA methylation is required for mammalian development. This gene encodes a DNA methyltransferase that is thought to function in de novo methylation, rather than maintenance methylation. The protein localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus and its expression is developmentally regulated. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
