Protein arginine N-methyltransferase PRMT5 (IPR007857)

Short name: Arg_MeTrfase_PRMT5

Family relationships


The human homologue of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Skb1 (Shk1 kinase-binding protein 1) is PRMT5, an arginine-N-methyltransferase [PMID: 10531356, PMID: 11152681]. These proteins appear to be key mitotic regulators. They play a role in Jak signalling in higher eukaryotes.
