Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase complex subunit ASH2 - Q9UBL3 (ASH2L_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Transcriptional regulator (PubMed:12670868). Component or associated component of some histone methyltransferase complexes which regulates transcription through recruitment of those complexes to gene promoters (PubMed:19131338). Component of the Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, but not if the neighboring 'Lys-9' residue is already methylated (PubMed:19556245). As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (PubMed:19556245). May play a role in hematopoiesis (PubMed:12670868). In association with RBBP5 and WDR5, stimulates the histone methyltransferase activities of KMT2A, KMT2B, KMT2C, KMT2D, SETD1A and SETD1B (PubMed:21220120, PubMed:22266653). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with HCFC1 (PubMed:12670868). Core component of several methyltransferase-containing complexes including MLL1/MLL, MLL2/3 (also named ASCOM complex) and MLL4/WBP7 (PubMed:15199122, PubMed:15960975, PubMed:17500065). Each complex is at least composed of ASH2L, RBBP5, WDR5, DPY30, one or more specific histone methyltransferases (KMT2A/MLL1, KMT2D/MLL2, KMT2C/MLL3 and KMT2B/MLL4), and the facultative components PAGR1, BAP18, CHD8, E2F6, HCFC1, HCFC2, HSP70, INO80C, KDM6A, KANSL1, LAS1L, MAX, MCRS1, MEN1, MGA, KAT8/MOF, NCOA6, PAXIP1/PTIP, PELP1, PHF20, PRP31, RING2, RUVB1/TIP49A, RUVB2/TIP49B, SENP3, TAF1, TAF4, TAF6, TAF7, TAF9, TEX10 and alpha- and beta-tubulin (PubMed:14992727, PubMed:15199122, PubMed:15960975, PubMed:17500065). Component of the SET1 complex, at least composed of the catalytic subunit (SETD1A or SETD1B), WDR5, WDR82, RBBP5, ASH2L/ASH2, CXXC1/CFP1, HCFC1 and DPY30 (PubMed:16253997, PubMed:17355966, PubMed:17998332, PubMed:18838538). Found in a complex with RBBP5, ASH2L, DPY30, KMT2A, KMT2D and WDR5 (By similarity). Component of a histone methylation complex composed of at least ZNF335, RBBP5, ASH2L and WDR5; the complex may have histone H3-specific methyltransferase activity, however does not have specificity for 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (PubMed:19131338). Within the complex, interacts with ZNF335 (PubMed:19131338). Interacts with RBBP5 (PubMed:19131338, PubMed:19556245, PubMed:21220120). Components of this complex may associate with components of a nuclear receptor-mediated transcription complex to form a complex at least composed of ZNF335, HCFC1, CCAR2, EMSY, MKI67, RBBP5, ASH2L and WDR5 (PubMed:19131338). Within this complex also interacts with CCAR2 and EMSY (PubMed:19131338). Interacts with DPY30 (PubMed:19556245). Interacts with SETD1A and SETD1B (PubMed:17998332). UniProt

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.
