KDM5B Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

KDM5B cDNA / Gene Overview

KDM5B cDNA / gene is a gene with protein product which located on 1q32.1. The KDM5B gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, C.elegans, and frog. 210 organisms have orthologs with human gene KDM5B.

KDM5B cDNA / Gene Function

This gene encodes a lysine-specific histone demethylase that belongs to the jumonji/ARID domain-containing family of histone demethylases. The encoded protein is capable of demethylating tri-, di- and monomethylated lysine 4 of histone H3. This protein plays a role in the transcriptional repression or certain tumor suppressor genes and is upregulated in certain cancer cells. This protein may also play a role in genome stability and DNA repair. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2016]
