YTX1, histone methyltransferase SET1, KMT2, L000003286, YHR119W
Histone methyltransferase, subunit of the COMPASS (Set1C) complex; COMPASS methylates histone H3K4; Set1p-dependent H3K4 trimethylation recruits Nrd1p, allowing efficient termination of snoRNAs and cryptic unstable transcripts (CUTs) by Nrd1p-Nab3p-Sen1p pathway; modulates histone acetylation levels in promoter proximal regions to ensure efficient Nrd1p-dependent termination; required in transcriptional silencing near telomeres and at silent mating type loci; has a SET domain

Association of SET domain and myotubularin-related proteins modulates growth control.

Several proteins that contribute to epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation contain a characteristic motif of unknown function called the SET (Suvar3-9, Enhancer-of-zeste, Trithorax) domain. We have demonstrated that SET domains mediate highly conserved interactions with a specific family of proteins that display similarity with dual-specificity phosphatases (dsPTPases). These include myotubularin, the gene of which is mutated in a subset of ... [more]
