Euchromatic histone methyltransferase-1 (EHMT1, 1267 aa) is a component of the E2F6 transcriptional repressor and has specificity for core histone H3. Some cases of chromosome 9q subtelomeric deletion syndrome, a mental retardation syndrome, are caused by mutation in the gene for EHMT1. See Jumonji.
