WHSC1 Histone methyltransferase with histone H3 'Lys-27' (H3K27me) methyltransferase activity. Isoform 2 may act as a transcription regulator that binds DNA and suppresses IL5 transcription through HDAC recruitment. Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. SET2 subfamily. Widely expressed. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
