General annotation (Comments)

Function

Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4. H4 'Lys-20' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in pericentric heterochromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the establishment of constitutive heterochromatin in these regions. SUV420H1 is targeted to histone H3 via its interaction with RB1 family proteins (RB1, RBL1 and RBL2). Ref.1

Catalytic activity

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + L-lysine-[histone] = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N(6)-methyl-L-lysine-[histone]. Ref.1

Subunit structure

Interacts with HP1 proteins CBX1, CBX3 and CBX5. Interacts with RB1 family proteins RB1, RBL1 and RBL2. Ref.1 Ref.4 Ref.5

Subcellular location

Nucleus. Chromosome. Note: Associated with pericentric heterochromatin. CBX1 and CBX5 are required for the localization to pericentric heterochromatin. Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. Suvar4-20 subfamily.

Contains 1 SET domain.

Sequence caution

The sequence AAH24816.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation.

The sequence AAH85473.2 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation.
