DAG for GO:0042800id: GO:0042800

name: histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific)
namespace: molecular_function
def: "Catalysis of the reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + histone H3 L-lysine (position 4) = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + histone H3 N6-methyl-L-lysine (position 4). This reaction is the addition of a methyl group onto lysine at position 4 of the histone H3 protein." [PMID:12086618]
comment: Note that in some species, the methyl group may be added to a lysine in a slightly different position of the histone H3 protein, but that this term still applies.
