Scientific Background :SETMAR or SET domain and mariner transposase fusion gene is a nonhomologous end-joining repair protein that regulates genomic integration of exogenous DNA by opening chromatin and facilitating joining of DNA ends (1). SETMAR has histone methyltransferase activity and methylates 'Lys-4' and 'Lys-36' of histone H3. SETMAR also has DNA nicking activity and may play a role in DNA repair (2). Human Pso4 forms a stable complex with SETMAR that regulates Metnase function in DNA repair. SETMAR has sequence-specific DNA-binding activity and recognizes the 19-mer core of the 5'-terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) of the Hsmar1 element.
