Summary
Predicted to enable beta-catenin binding activity and transcription cis-regulatory region binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific). Acts upstream of or within positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in euchromatin. Part of MLL1 complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; branchial arch; genitourinary system; gut gland; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human ASH2L (ASH2 like, histone lysine methyltransferase complex subunit). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) differs in the 5' UTR, has multiple differences in the coding region, and initiates translation at a downstream start codon compared to variant 4. The resulting isoform (b) has, among multiple differences, a shorter N-terminus compared to isoform d. This variant (2), as well as variant 3, encodes isoform b.
