Gene Name:
WD repeat domain 5

xwdr5 , swd3 , big-3 , wdr5-a , wdr5-b ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
WD40 repeat-containing protein

Protein Function :
Contributes to histone modification. May position the N-terminus of histone H3 for efficient trimethylation at 'Lys-4'. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation a...[+]
