KDM3B(redirected from lysine-specific demethylase 3B)
KDM3BA gene on chromosome 2p11.2 that encodes lysine-specific demethylase 3B, which demethylates histone H3 and thus plays a central role in histone code. The demethylation reaction generates formaldehyde and succinate. KDM3B may have tumour suppressor activity.
