BMP2-induced 3-kb gene protein; Contributes to histone modification. May position the N- terminus of histone H3 for efficient trimethylation at 'Lys-4'. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at 'Lys-4' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. May regulate osteoblasts differentiation; Belongs to the WD repeat WDR5/wds family.
Synonyms: WDR5, WDR5p, hWDR5, P61964, V9GYQ5 ...
