Descripción general

G9a-Like Protein 1 (GLP1), also known as Euchromatic histone lysine N-methyl-transferase 1 (EMHT1), is a histone methyltransferase that methylates Lys9 of histone H3. H3Lys9 methylation is a marker for epigenetic transcriptional repression. EMHT1/GLP1 is targeted to histone H3 by different DNA-binding proteins like E2F6, MGA, MAX and/or DP1. During G0 phase, it contributes to silencing of Myc- and E2F-responsive genes, suggesting a role in G0/G1 transition in cell cycle. EMHT1/GLP1 is phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR. Defects in EHMT1 result in severe mental retardation, hypotonia, and epileptic seizures.

Synthetic glucocorticoids (GCs) are used to treat lymphoid cancers, but many patients develop resistance to treatment, especially to GC. By identifying genes that influence sensitivity to GC-induced cell death, we found that histone methyltransferases G9a and G9a-like protein (GLP), two...

Signaling via the methylation of lysine residues in proteins has been linked to diverse biological and disease processes, yet the catalytic activity and substrate specificity of many human protein lysine methyltransferases (PKMTs) are unknown. We screened over 40 candidate PKMTs...

Protein methyltransferases (PMTs) have emerged as important epigenetic regulators in myriad biological processes in both normal physiology and disease conditions. However, elucidating PMT-regulated epigenetic processes has been hampered by ambiguous knowledge about in vivo activities of individual PMTs particularly because...

The binding of p53-binding protein 1 (53BP1) to damaged chromatin is a critical event in non-homologous DNA end joining (NHEJ)-mediated DNA damage repair. Although several molecular pathways explaining how 53BP1 binds damaged chromatin have been described, the precise underlying mechanisms...

Like many transcription regulators, histone methyltransferases G9a and G9a-like protein (GLP) can act gene-specifically as coregulators, but mechanisms controlling this specificity are mostly unknown. We show that adjacent post-translational methylation and phosphorylation regulate binding of G9a and GLP to heterochromatin...
