Euchromatic histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 1, or, EHMT1, is a human gene. Other names include: Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase EHMT1; Eu-HMTase1; G9a-like protein 1; GLP; GLP1; Histone H3-K9 methyltransferase 5; H3-K9-HMTase 5; Lysine N-methyltransferase 1D; Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase EHMT1 ; EUHMTASE1; FP13812; KMT1D; bA188C12.1. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 1298 and a mass of 141.5 kDa. Euchromatic histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 1 is a member of the Class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Mouse, Rat, Frog, Chicken.
