Protein Information
Name SUV420H2
Synonyms KMT5C
Function Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4. H4 'Lys-20' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in pericentric heterochromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the establishment of constitutive heterochromatin in these regions. SUV420H1 is targeted to histone H3 via its interaction with RB1 family proteins (RB1, RBL1 and RBL2) (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Associated with pericentric heterochromatin. CBX1 and CBX5 are required for the localization to pericentric heterochromatin (By similarity).
