Summaries for UTY Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UTY Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein containing tetratricopeptide repeats which are thought to be involved in protein-protein interactions. The encoded protein is also a minor histocompatibility antigen which may induce graft rejection of male stem cell grafts. A large number of alternatively spliced transcripts have been observed for this gene, but the full length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]

GeneCards Summary for UTY Gene

UTY (Ubiquitously Transcribed Tetratricopeptide Repeat Containing, Y-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UTY include Kabuki Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include dioxygenase activity and histone demethylase activity (H3-K27 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KDM6A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UTY Gene

  • Male-specific histone demethylase that catalyzes trimethylated Lys-27 (H3K27me3) demethylation in histone H3. Has relatively low lysine demethylase activity.
