Proteins bearing the widely distributed SET domain have been shown to methylate lysine residues in histones and other proteins. In this issue, three-dimensional structures are reported for three very different SET domain-containing proteins. The structures reveal novel folds for several new domains, including SET, and provide early insights into mechanisms of catalysis and molecular recognition in this family of enzymes.
