This is histone 3 lysine 36 dimethylated peptide. This peptide has been shown to form a histone deacetylase complex with nucleosomes and inhibit transcription. In addition, due to its epigenetic suppression marker, it allows the demethylation of JMJD5, a member of the Jumonji C domain family, which acts as a transcriptional activator by inhibiting HDAC and regulates cell cycle proliferation.
