COMPASS (Set1C, Complex Proteins Associated with Set1) is a nuclear complex that acts as a histone H3 (Lysine 4) methyltransferase required for telomeric silencing of gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [PMID: 11805083]. Component of the COMPASS (Set1C) complex include Set1(2), Bre2(2), Spp1(2), Sdc1(1), Shg1(1), Swd1(1), Swd2(1), and Swd3(1).

This entry includes S. cerevisiae Shg1, which is a SET domain-containing protein related to the human Trx protein ASH2 [PMID: 11687631].
