Domain relationships



Histone-arginine methyltransferase CARM1 (also known as coactivator-associated arginine methyltransferase 1) methylates arginine residues in several proteins involved in DNA packaging, transcription regulation, and mRNA stability [PMID: 16146736]. CARM1 is recruited by several transcription factors and plays a critical role in gene expression as a positive regulator. This entry represents the N-terminal domain of CARM1. Structurally this domain adopts a PH domain-like fold, a common structural scaffold found in a broad range proteins with diverse activities, which is frequently found to regulate protein-protein interactions [PMID: 17882262].
