Summary
Arginine methylation is a widespread posttranslational modification mediated by arginine methyltransferases, such as PRMT8. Arginine methylation is involved in a number of cellular processes, including DNA repair, RNA transcription, signal transduction, protein compartmentalization, and possibly protein translation (Lee et al., 2005 [PubMed 16051612]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

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.

  1. NM_001256536.1NP_001243465.1  protein arginine N-methyltransferase 8 isoform 2

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) uses an alternate 5' exon and it thus differs in the 5' UTR and 5' coding region, compared to variant 1. The resulting isoform (2) has a distinct N-terminus and is shorter than isoform 1.

Suppressed Reference Sequence(s)

The following Reference Sequences have been suppressed. Explain

  1. NM_001256537.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_001256537.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript, which may retain intronic sequence at its 5' end.
  2. NR_046301.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NR_046301.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript, which may be incomplete at its 5' end.
