Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase ASHH2 - Q2LAE1 (ASHH2_ARATH)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q2LAE1: 2
Histone methyltransferase involved in di and tri-methylation of 'Lys-36' of histone H3 (H3K36me2 and H3K36me3). Binds to H3 already mono- or di-methylated on 'Lys-4'(H3K4me1 or H3K4me2), but not to H3K4me3. H3K4me and H3K36me represent specific tags for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Regulates positively FLC transcription to prevent early flowering transition. Required for flowering transition in response to vernalization and for the maintenance of FLC expression in late embryos, but dispensable for the initial reactivation in early embryos during reprogramming. Seems also to modulate several traits including floral organ size, root size and dormancy. Promotes apical dominance (PubMed:16299497, PubMed:10518493, PubMed:16258034, PubMed:18070919, PubMed:19915673, PubMed:20711170). Directly involved in the tri-methylation of 'Lys-36' of histone H3 (H3K36me3) at LAZ5 chromatin to maintain a transcriptionally active state of LAZ5, a TIR-NB-LRR protein involved in innate immunity (PubMed:20949080). Required for brassinosteroid (BR)-induced gene expression and histone H3 trimethylation on 'Lys-36' (H3K36me3) in BR-regulated genes (PubMed:24838002). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
