|Function||Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-9' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression by recruiting HP1 (CBX1, CBX3 and/or CBX5) proteins to methylated histones. Mainly functions in euchromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the silencing of euchromatic genes. H3 'Lys-9' trimethylation is coordinated with DNA methylation. Probably forms a complex with MBD1 and ATF7IP that represses transcription and couples DNA methylation and histone 'Lys-9' trimethylation. Its activity is dependent on MBD1 and is heritably maintained through DNA replication by being recruited by CAF-1. SETDB1 is targeted to histone H3 by TRIM28/TIF1B, a factor recruited by KRAB zinc-finger proteins.|

The Ergassociated protein with SET domain (ESET), also known as SET domain, bifurcated 1 (SETDB1) protein, is a member of a family of histone lysine methyltransferases, each of which contains a conserved catalytic SET domain originally identified in Drosophila, Enhancer of zeste, and Trithorax proteins. ESET also contains tudor and methylCpGbinding domains, which may coordinate binding to methylated histones and methylated DNA, respectively. ESET methylates histone H3 Lys9, creating a transcriptionally repressive mark that facilitates gene silencing. However, unlike SUV39H histone H3 Lys9 methyltransferases, which function mainly in heterochromatin regions such as pericentric heterochromatin, ESET functions mainly in euchromatic regions to repress gene promoters. ESET interacts with a variety of proteins, including transcription factors (ERG), histone deacetylases (HDAC1/2), DNA methyltransferases (DNMT3A/B) and transcriptional corepressors (mSin3A/B, MBD1, KAP1, the ATFaassociated modulator mAM). mAM forms a complex with ESET, stimulating its methyltransferase activity, specifically the conversion of dimethyl to trimethyl histone H3 Lys9. MBD1 recruits ESET to the CAF1 complex to facilitate methylation of histone H3 Lys9 during replicationcoupled chromatin assembly in S phase. DNMT3A recruits ESET to silenced promoters in cancer cells. ESET may play a role in the pathogenesis of Huntington's disease, since levels of ESET protein and trimethyl histone H3 Lys9 are both increased in diseased brains.
