KMT5A, PR-Set7, SET07, SET8, SETD8, H4-K20-HMTase KMT5A.
Lysine Methyltransferase 5A (KMT5A) is an enzyme which catalyzes both histones and non-histone proteins. KMT5A contributes to the maintenance of proper higher-order structure of DNA during mitosis. KMT5A takes part in cell-cycle-dependent transcriptional silencing and mitotic regulation in metazoans. KMT5A plays a role as a barrier to prevent cellular senescence through chromatinmediated regulation of senescence-associated metabolic remodeling. KMT5A mediates monomethylation of p53/TP53 at 'Lys-382', which leads to repress p53/TP53-target genes. The loss of KMT5A simultaneously stimulate nucleolar function and retinoblastoma protein-mediated mitochondrial metabolism.
KMT5A produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 165 amino acids (195-352 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 18.9kDa (Migrates at 18-28 kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).
KMT5A is expressed with a 7 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
KMT5A protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 5mM DTT, 0.2M NaCl, 1mM EDTA and 50% glycerol.
Greater than 85.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
