ASH1L a protein methyltransferase that specifically methylates K36 of histone H3 (H3K36me). A member of the trithorax group (trxG) of transcriptional activators that is required for proper expression of Hox genes and is preferentially expressed in haematopoietic stem cells. Widely expressed, with high levels in brain, heart and kidney. The protein contains four AT hooks, a SET domain, a PHD-finger motif, and a bromodomain. It is localized to many small speckles in the nucleus, and also to cell-cell tight junctions. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
