18713068 Results show that many genes regulated by hypoxia and HIF-1alpha show patterns of induction with JMJD (Jumonji-domain containing)1A and JMJD2B demonstrating robust, and JMJD2C more modest, up-regulation by hypoxia.
18649358 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17611647 JMJD2C is the histone demethylase implicated in the epigenetic reprogramming during the early embryogenesis.
17277772 JMJD2C and LSD1 interact and both demethylases cooperatively stimulate androgen receptor-dependent gene transcription.
16732293 GASC1 interacts with H3K9me3; three members of this subfamily of proteins demethylate H3K9me3/me2 in vitro through a hydroxylation reaction requiring iron and alpha-ketoglutarate as cofactors
