|Function||Histone demethylase that demethylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation, thereby acting as a corepressor. Required for de novo DNA methylation of a subset of imprinted genes during oogenesis. Acts by oxidizing the substrate by FAD to generate the corresponding imine that is subsequently hydrolyzed. Demethylates both mono- and di-methylated 'Lys-4' of histone H3. Has no effect on tri- methylated 'Lys-4', mono-, di- or tri-methylated 'Lys-9', mono-, di- or tri-methylated 'Lys-27', mono-, di- or tri-methylated 'Lys- 36' of histone H3, or on mono-, di- or tri-methylated 'Lys-20' of histone H4 (By similarity).|

Flavin-dependent histone demethylases regulate histone lysine methylation, an epigenetic mark that regulates gene expression and chromatin function (reviewed in 1). KDM1B is a recently identified histone H3K4 demethylase that is required to establish maternal genomic imprints; targeted disruption of the KDM1B gene in mice led to lethality in their embryos, suggesting demethylation of H3K4 is critical for establishing the DNA methylation imprints (2). KDM1B has also been shown to play a role in the transcription elongation in several genes (3).
