26183527 Our results reveal the regulatory mechanism of LSD1 protein through its lysine methylation by SUV39H2 in human cancer cells
25459750 We also demonstrate that the N324K mutant in the SET domain of SUV39H2 that has been shown to cause an inherited nasal skin disease in Labrador Retrievers renders SUV39H2 inactive
23891737 Expression of JHDM2A was significantly increased but HDAC2, HDAC7, and SUV39H2 were significantly down-regulated in Systemic Sclerosis B cells relative to controls
21896933 genetic association studies in a Finnish population with type I diabetes: The minor T allele of exonic SNP rs17353856 in SUV39H2 is associated with diabetic retinopathy (in a larger meta-analysis); thus an genetic variation may be protective.
21402781 findings suggest that Suv39H1 and Suv39H2 are key hypoxia-induced methyltransferases; their decline in fetal lung during late gestation is critical for epigenetic changes resulting in the developmental induction of SP-A
18231586 The SUV39H2 gene is found in tetrapods (e.g., human, mouse and frog) but not in zebrafish, suggesting that this gene is generated by a tetrapod lineage-specific gene duplication event.
16774942 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
16774942 a novel SUV39H2 polymorphism may have a role in lung cancer susceptibility for smokers
