Transferring one-carbon groups;
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[histone H3]-N6,N6-dimethyl-L-lysine9 N6-methyltransferase
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a [histone H3]-N6,N6-dimethyl-L-lysine9 = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a [histone H3]-N6,N6,N6-trimethyl-L-lysine9
(other) R04867
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
[histone H3]-N6,N6-dimethyl-L-lysine9
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
[histone H3]-N6,N6,N6-trimethyl-L-lysine9
The enzyme methylates only dimethylated lysine9 of histone H3 (H3K9), forming the trimethylated form. This modification influences the binding of chromatin-associated proteins. In general, the methylation of H3K9 leads to transcriptional repression of the affected target genes. The enzyme is highly upregulated in Huntington disease patients. cf. EC, [histone H3]-lysine9 N-methyltransferase, and EC, [histone H3]-lysine9 N-dimethyltransferase, and EC, [histone H3]-lysine9 N-trimethyltransferase.
