FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Huntington's disease (HD), a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of striatal neurons, is caused by an expansion of a polyglutamine tract in the HD protein huntingtin. This gene encodes a protein belonging to a class of huntingtin interacting proteins characterized by WW motifs. This protein is a histone methyltransferase that is specific for lysine-36 of histone H3, and methylation of this residue is associated with active chromatin. This protein also contains a novel transcriptional activation domain and has been found associated with hyperphosphorylated RNA polymerase II. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit impaired embryonic vascular remodeling in the embryo proper, yolk sac, and placenta that leads to death around E10.5. [provided by MGI curators]
