IUBMB Comments
Requires iron(II). Of the seven potential methylation sites in histones H3 (K4, K9, K27, K36, K79) and H4 (K20, R3) from HeLa cells, the enzyme is specific for Lys36. Lysine residues exist in three methylation states (mono-, di- and trimethylated). The enzyme preferentially demethylates the dimethyl form of Lys36 (K36me2), which is its natural substrate, to form the monomethylated and unmethylated forms of Lys36. It can also demethylate monomethylated (but not the trimethylated) Lys36. cf. EC, [histone H3]-trimethyl-L-lysine36 demethylase.
