MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the SET domain family of histone lysine N-methyltransferase proteins. This protein methylates histone H3 at lysine residues 4 and 27, which represses gene transcription. It acts in opposition to the histone demethylase Jmjd1c. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2015]

Nature of Mutation
DNA sequencing using the SOLiD technique identified a C to A transversion at position 4422 of the Whsc1l1 transcript in exon 24 of 25 total exons. Multiple transcripts of the Whsc1l1 gene are displayed on Ensembl. The mutated nucleotide causes a threonine to asparagine substitution at amino acid 1355 of the encoded protein. The mutation has been confirmed by DNA sequencing using the Sanger method (Figure 1).
Protein Function and Prediction
The Whsc1l1 gene encodes a 1439 amino acid histone methyltransferase. This protein preferentially methylates 'Lys-4' and 'Lys-27' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation, while 'Lys-27' is a mark for transcriptional repression. WHSC1L1 contains one AWS domain, four PHD-type zinc domains, one post-SET domain, two PWWP domains and one SET domain (Uniprot Q6P2L6).
 
The T1355N change occurs in the fourth PHD-type zinc finger, but is predicted to be benign by the PolyPhen program.
