Short name: SUVR4/1/2

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This entry represents a family of plant proteins that includes histone-lysine N-methyltransferase SUVR4 and related proteins SUVR1 and SUVR2. SUVR4 is an active histone methyltransferase with a preference for H3K9me1 [PMID: 17020925]. SUVR2 has no histone methyltransferase activity and is involved in transcriptional gene silencing [PMID: 25420628]. SUVR2 forms a complex with SUVR1 and associates with the SNF2-related chromatin-remodeling proteins. No histone methyltransferase activity has been detected for SUVR1 neither [PMID: 17020925].
