|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-CLLD8 / SETDB2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||C13orf4, CLLD8, KMT1F|
|Function||Histone methyltransferase involved in left-right axis specification in early development and mitosis. Specifically trimethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me3). H3K9me3 is a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression that recruits HP1 (CBX1, CBX3 and/or CBX5) proteins to methylated histones. Contributes to H3K9me3 in both the interspersed repetitive elements and centromere-associated repeats. Plays a role in chromosome condensation and segregation during mitosis.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highest expression in heart, testis and ovary|

Proteins that contain a SET domain, such as SETDB2, modulate gene expression epigenetically through histone H3 (see MIM 601128) methylation. SETDB2 is likely a histone H3 methyltransferase, as it contains both the active site and flanking cysteine residues required for catalytic activity (Zhang et al., 2003 [PubMed 12754510]).
