SUVAR39H is a methyltransferase which methylates the Lysine 9 of histone H3, creating a binding site for the Heterochromatin Protein HP1, which recruits a DNA methyltransferase, which methylates CpG in DNA. (Me= Methyl; Methyl H3-K9= Methyl on Lysine 9 of Histone H3; HP1=Heterochromatin Protein 1; DNMT=DNA Methyltransferase).

a) RNA polymerase II (Pol II) binds the promoter region of the gene but cannot proceed without specific methylation marks on histone. b) RNA transcription may be initiated when a promoter region (I) carries histone H3 lysine 4 (H3K4) methylation, and extend when an open-reading frame region (II) carries H3K36 methylation. H3K79 methylation has a broad distribution across promoter and open-reading frame regions (III). Emerging roles for histone methylation c) Mixed lineage leukaemia (MLL) is a member of a multiprotein complex that mediates methylation of H3K4 within the promoter region of genes occupied by RNA polymerase II.

The MLL complex WDR5 interacts with methylated H3K4, presenting it for further methylation by linking the catalytic MT(methyltransferase) domain of MLL1 with its substrate. This interaction is necessary for H3K4 trimethylation and subsequent transcription of MLL1 target genes. Nomenclature: H3K4 H3K4-me H3K4-2me H3K4-3me
