|Function||Protein-lysine N-methyltransferase that monomethylates both histones and non-histone proteins. Specifically monomethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4 (H4K20me1). H4K20me1 is enriched during mitosis and represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in euchromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the silencing of euchromatic genes. Required for cell proliferation, probably by contributing to the maintenance of proper higher-order structure of DNA during mitosis. Involved in chromosome condensation and proper cytokinesis. Nucleosomes are preferred as substrate compared to free histones. Mediates monomethylation of p53/TP53 at 'Lys-382', leading to repress p53/TP53-target genes. Plays a negative role in TGF-beta response regulation and a positive role in cell migration.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Specifically localizes to mitotic chromosomes. Colocalized with SIRT2 at mitotic foci. Associates with chromosomes during mitosis; association is increased in a H(2)O(2)-induced oxidative stress- dependent manner. Associates with silent chromatin on euchromatic arms. Not associated with constitutive heterochromatin|
