G9a is one of the well-characterized histone methyltransferases. G9a regulates H3K9 mono- and dimethylation at euchromatic region and consequently plays important roles in euchromatic gene regulation. Mammalian G9a contains several distinct domains, such as GHD (G9a homology domain), ANK, preSET, SET and PostSET. These domains are highly conserved between… CONTINUE READING
