(redirected from JMJD2C)

KDM4C

A gene on chromosome 9p24.1 that encodes lysine-specific demethylase 4C, which demethylates histone H3 and generates formaldehyde and succinate.

Molecular pathology
Chromosome defects and increased transcriptional expression of KDM4C are associated with squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus.
