Western blot analysis of EHMT1 (arrow) using rabbit EHMT1 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB2183). 293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected with the EHMT1 gene (Lane 2) (Origene Technologies).
The protein encoded by this gene is a histone methyltransferase that is part of the E2F6 complex, which represses transcription. The encoded protein methylates the Lys-9 position of histone H3, which tags it for transcriptional repression. This protein may be involved in the silencing of MYC- and E2F-responsive genes and therefore could play a role in the G0/G1 cell cycle transition. Defects in this gene are a cause of chromosome 9q subtelomeric deletion syndrome (9q-syndrome). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
