Lysine-specific demethylase 6A

Protein Summary
Description
Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-27' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code (PubMed:17851529, PubMed:17713478, PubMed:17761849). Demethylates trimethylated and dimethylated but not monomethylated H3 'Lys-27' (PubMed:17851529, PubMed:17713478, PubMed:17761849). Plays a central role in regulation of posterior development, by regulating HOX gene expression (PubMed:17851529). Demethylation of 'Lys-27' of histone H3 is concomitant with methylation of 'Lys-4' of histone H3, and regulates the recruitment of the PRC1 complex and monoubiquitination of histone H2A (PubMed:17761849). Plays a demethylase-independent role in chromatin remodeling to regulate T-box family member-dependent gene expression (By similarity). This gene is located on the X chromosome and is the corresponding locus to a Y-linked gene which encodes a tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) protein. The encoded protein of this gene contains a JmjC-domain and catalyzes the demethylation of ...more
