General description

The gene SET domain bifurcated-1 (SETDB1) is located in human chromosome 1 (1q21). The encoded protein contains a DNA methyl binding domain and catalytic SET domain at the N- and C-terminus respectively. In non­-small lung cancer cells SETDB1 is present mainly in the nucleus, with additional cytoplasmic expression. Similarly, mouse embryos showed SETDB1 signal in the nucleus.

Biochem/physiol Actions

SET domain bifurcated-1 (SETDB1) is responsible for methylation of histone 3 lysine-9 in euchromatic region, resulting in a repressed transcription mark. During DNA replication, it is recruited by Methyl-CpG-binding domain protein-1 (MBD1) and forms a replication coupled complex with chromatin assemble factor CAF-1 to methylate lysine-9 at the newly deposited histone 3. The gene is up-regulated in glioma tissues, melanomas, non-small and small lung cancers. SETDB1 undergoes gene amplification in lung tumorigenesis. Higher expression causes stimulation of WNT-β-catenin pathway and down-regulation of P53 expression, resulting in enhanced non-small cell lung cancer growth. Role of SETDB1 in cancer is also suggested by its association with the promyelocytic nuclear leukemia-nuclear bodies and increased expression in broncoepithelial cells. SETDB1 is involved in proviral silencing during embryogenesis when DNA methylation is dynamically reprogrammed.
