General description

Histone demethylase UTX is also known as Lysine-specific demethylase 6A, Ubiquitously-transcribed TPR protein on the X chromosome, and Ubiquitously-transcribed X chromosome tetratricopeptide repeat protein. UTX is a histone demethylase that specifically demethylates trimethylated and dimethylated but not monomethylated histone H3 ′Lys-27′. UTX is involved in regulation of posterior development, and defects can cause Kabuki syndrome type 2 (KABUK2)


Other homologies: Canine (99% sequence homology) and Bovine (96% sequence homology).


GST-tagged recombinant protein corresponding to human UTX.
