    basic FUNCTION
  • as a novel histone demethylase specific for these two repressing marks
  • might contribute to transcriptional regulation of genes in the nervous system
  • might regulate the proliferation or differentiation of neurons and plays an important role in brain development
  • ability to mediate the direct removal of methyl groups from H3K9me2/me1 and H3K27me2/me1
  • co-activator function having important functional roles in neuronal development
  • modifies the level of methylation in histone and participates in epigenetic gene regulation
  • plays a tumor-suppressive role by regulating angiogenesis
  • KDM7A regulates ICAM1 protein stability via a lysosome-dependent pathway

    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
  • regulates transcription and H3K9me2 and H3K27me2 levels of the follistatin gene
  • small molecule
    protein
  • pro-neural differentiation effect of KDM7A is mediated through direct transcriptional activation of FGF4, a signal molecule implicated in neural differentiation
  • KDM6B and KDM7A play a role in localizing elongation factors SUPT6H and SUPT16H to the target genes
  • EHMT2 orchestrates PHF19 and KDM7A to promote histone H3K27 methylation
  • role of KDM7A in ICAM1 protein stabilization
  • mediates TNF-induced ICAM1 protein upregulation mediated by induction of KDM7A, which regulates the TFEB-mediated lysosomal activity

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • splicing-blocking antisense morpholino oligonucleotides that targeting Zebrafish KDM7 ortholog lead to a curly tail and marked decrease in size of the tectum with loss of neurons
  • depletion of KDM7 by RNAi in primary cultured mouse neurons also resulted in down-regulation of follistatin mRNA
