|Other Names||Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2B, Lysine N-methyltransferase 2B, Myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia protein 4, Trithorax homolog 2, WW domain-binding protein 7, WBP-7, KMT2B, HRX2, KIAA0304, MLL2, MLL4, TRX2, WBP7|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6185a was selected from the C-term region of human MLL4 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||HRX2, KIAA0304, MLL2, MLL4, TRX2, WBP7|
|Function||Histone methyltransferase. Methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Plays a central role in beta-globin locus transcription regulation by being recruited by NFE2. Plays an important role in controlling bulk H3K4me during oocyte growth and preimplantation development. Required during the transcriptionally active period of oocyte growth for the establishment and/or maintenance of bulk H3K4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), global transcriptional silencing that preceeds resumption of meiosis, oocyte survival and normal zygotic genome activation.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Highest levels in testis. Also found in brain, bone marrow, heart, muscle, kidney, placenta, spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary, intestine, colon, peripheral blood lymphocytes and pancreas. Often amplified in pancreatic carcinomas|

MLL4 contains multiple domains including a CXXC zinc finger, three PHD zinc fingers, two FY-rich domains, and a SET (suppressor of variegation, enhancer of zeste, and trithorax) domain. The SET domain is a conserved C-terminal domain that characterizes proteins of the MLL (mixed-lineage leukemia) family. This gene is ubiquitously expressed in adult tissues. It is also amplified in solid tumor cell lines, and may be involved in human cancer.
