EC                Enzyme                                 

[histone H4]-lysine20 N-methyltransferase;
KMT5A (gene name);
SET8 (gene name);
PR-SET7 (gene name)
Transferring one-carbon groups;
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[histone H4]-L-lysine20 N6-methyltransferase
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a [histone H4]-L-lysine20 = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a [histone H4]-N6-methyl-L-lysine20
(other) R03875
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
[histone H4]-L-lysine20
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
[histone H4]-N6-methyl-L-lysine20
The enzyme catalyses the monomethylation of the L-lysine20 residue of histone H4 (H4K20). This event is usually followed by further methylation by EC, [histone H4]-N-methyl-L-lysine20 N-methyltransferase. This enzyme plays a pivotal role in DNA replication. Activity is high during the G2 and M phases, but declines significantly during G1 and S phases. Mutations in the enzyme have severe consequences, including DNA double-strand breaks, activation of DNA damage checkpoints, defective cell cycle progression, and reduced cell proliferation.
EC created 1976 as EC, modified 1982, modified 1983, part transferred 2019 to EC
