Gene: Kdm2b (lysine (K)-specific demethylase 2B) Mus musculus
Symbol: Kdm2b
Name: lysine (K)-specific demethylase 2B
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a H3K36-specific histone demethylase, which contains an N-terminal jumonji C domain, a CxxC zinc finger domain, a plant homeodomain finger, an F-box, and eight leucine-rich repeats. Amongst its demonstrated functions, this protein plays roles in the suppression of premature cellular senescence, leukemia maintenance and development, maintenance of mouse embryonic stem cell pluripotency, and induced pluripotent stem cell generation. Mice homozygous for a targeted deletion of the zinc finger domain display embryonic lethality with development ceasing at approximately 7 to 8 days post coitum, demonstrating an essential role in early development. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 4. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]
