histone methyltransferase activity Gene Set

Dataset GO Molecular Function Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type molecular function
Description Catalysis of the reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + histone = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + methyl-histone. Histone methylation generally occurs on either an arginine or lysine residue. (Gene Ontology, GO_0042054)
