    A histone H3K9M mutation traps histone methyltransferase Clr4 to prevent heterochromatin spreading

    Chun-Min Shan et al.
    A lysine-to-methionine mutation in histone H3 dominantly blocks histone H3K9 methylation by trapping its methyltransferase.

    SETD3 protein is the actin-specific histidine N-methyltransferase

    Sebastian Kwiatkowski et al.
    Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase SETD3 (NP_115609.2) was identified as the actin-specific histidine N-methyltransferase, an enzyme catalyzing the extremely well-conserved methylation of H73 in β-actin.

    The preRC protein ORCA organizes heterochromatin by assembling histone H3 lysine 9 methyltransferases on chromatin

    Sumanprava Giri et al.
    Origin recognition complex-associated (ORCA) is crucial for the stability of the Histone H3 lysine 9 methyltransferase megacomplex, which is essential for heterochromatin organization.

    The dynamic conformational landscape of the protein methyltransferase SETD8

    Shi Chen et al.
    Integrated experimental-computational approaches were implemented to reveal the dynamic conformational landscape of a biologically relevant protein methyltransferase SETD8 for functional annotation.

    H3K4 mono- and di-methyltransferase MLL4 is required for enhancer activation during cell differentiation

    Ji-Eun Lee et al.
    MLL4 (KMT2D) is a major mammalian H3K4 mono- and di-methyltransferase that is essential for enhancer activation, cell-type-specific gene expression, and cell differentiation.

    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is essential for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis in mice

    Kerstin Schmidt et al.
    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is intrinsically required for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis and regulates lineage specification in mice.

    The ‘de novo’ DNA methyltransferase Dnmt3b compensates the Dnmt1-deficient intestinal epithelium

    Ellen N Elliott et al.
    The maintenance methyltransferase Dnmt1 and the de novo methyltransferase Dnmt3b cooperate to maintain DNA methylation and genomic stability in the adult intestinal epithelium.

    Structural insights into the molecular mechanism of the m6A writer complex

    Paweł Śledź, Martin Jinek
    The structure of the catalytic core of the N6-methyladenosine RNA methyltransferase complex METTL3-METTL14 reveals that METTL3 is the catalytic subunit, while METTL14 plays non-catalytic roles in substrate recognition and in maintaining complex integrity.
