|Synonyms||BAT8, C6orf30, G9A, KMT1C, NG36|
|Function||Histone methyltransferase that specifically mono- and dimethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me1 and H3K9me2, respectively) in euchromatin. H3K9me represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression by recruiting HP1 proteins to methylated histones. Also mediates monomethylation of 'Lys-56' of histone H3 (H3K56me1) in G1 phase, leading to promote interaction between histone H3 and PCNA and regulating DNA replication. Also weakly methylates 'Lys-27' of histone H3 (H3K27me). Also required for DNA methylation, the histone methyltransferase activity is not required for DNA methylation, suggesting that these 2 activities function independently. Probably targeted to histone H3 by different DNA-binding proteins like E2F6, MGA, MAX and/or DP1. May also methylate histone H1. In addition to the histone methyltransferase activity, also methylates non-histone proteins: mediates dimethylation of 'Lys- 373' of p53/TP53. Also methylates CDYL, WIZ, ACIN1, DNMT1, HDAC1, ERCC6, KLF12 and itself.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Associates with euchromatic regions. Does not associate with heterochromatin|

A cluster of genes, BAT1-BAT5, has been localized in thevicinity of the genes for TNF alpha and TNF beta. This gene isfound near this cluster; it was mapped near the gene for C2 withina 120-kb region that included a HSP70 gene pair. These genes areall within the human major histocompatibility complex class IIIregion. This gene was thought to be two different genes, NG36 andG9a, adjacent to each other but a recent publication shows thatthere is only a single gene. The protein encoded by this gene isthought to be involved in intracellular protein-proteininteraction.
