Suppressor of variegation 4-20 homolog 2
SUV420H2 and the related enzyme SUV420H1 (MIM 610881) function as histone methyltransferases that specifically trimethylate nucleosomal histone H4 (see MIM 602822) on lysine-20 (K20) (Schotta et al., 2004 [PubMed 15145825]).[supplied by OMIM, Dec 2009] (from

This review explores recent progress in elucidating the molecular basis of these specificities, highlighting structural and functional studies of the methyltransferases SUV4-20H1 (KMT5B), SUV4-20H2 (KMT5C), and ATXR5, and the demethylases UTX (KDM6A), JMJD3 (KDM6B), and JMJD2D (KDM4D).

In contrast to pericentric or telomeric regions, recruitment of the H4K20 methyltransferase Suv4-20h2 to rRNA genes and IAP elements requires neither trimethylation of H3K9 nor interaction with HP1 proteins but depends on long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) that interact with Suv4-20h2.
Abrogation of Suv4-20h enzymes and loss of heterochromatic mark H4K20me3 at telomeric heterochromatin facilitates telomere reprogramming and provides an increased tumorigenic potential to induced pluripotent stem cells.

Indeed, we show a direct interaction between the RB1 proteins and the H4K20 tri-methylating enzymes Suv4-20h1 and Suv4-20h2, indicating that the RB1 family has a role in controlling H4K20 tri-methylation by these histone methyltransferases.
