Gene: Ehmt2 (euchromatic histone lysine methyltransferase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ehmt2
Name: euchromatic histone lysine methyltransferase 2
RGD ID: 1302972
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including C2H2 zinc finger domain binding activity; RNA polymerase II transcription corepressor binding activity; and histone-lysine N-methyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including long-term memory; regulation of histone methylation; and response to fungicide. Localizes to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Orthologous to human EHMT2 (euchromatic histone lysine methyltransferase 2); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; lysine degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,6-dinitrotoluene; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Bat8; euchromatic histone lysine N-methyltransferase 2; euchromatic histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2; G9a; histone-lysine N-methyltransferase EHMT2; histone-lysine N-methyltransferase, H3 lysine-9 specific 3; HLA-B associated transcript 8, rat orthologue; Ng36
