FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Arginine methylation is a widespread posttranslational modification mediated by arginine methyltransferases, such as PRMT8. Arginine methylation is involved in a number of cellular processes, including DNA repair, RNA transcription, signal transduction, protein compartmentalization, and possibly protein translation (Lee et al., 2005 [PubMed 16051612]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knockout allele exhibit abnormal Purkinje cell dendrite morphology, hyperactivity, limb grasping and gait abnormalities, and show reduced levels of acetylcholine and choline along with increased phosphatidylcholine levels in the cerebellum.
