Summary

The gene codes for a protein, jumonji domain containing 1C. Mutations are linked to Rett syndrome and intellectual disability [R].


Function

Probable histone demethylase that specifically demethylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Demethylation of Lys residue generates formaldehyde and succinate. May be involved in hormone-dependent transcriptional activation, by participating in recruitment to androgen-receptor target genes.

Protein names

Recommended name:

Probable JmjC domain-containing histone demethylation protein 2C

Short name:

TRIP-8

Alternative name(s):

Jumonji domain-containing protein 1C
Thyroid receptor-interacting protein 8
TR-interacting protein 8
