Lysine-specific demethylase 5C is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the KDM5Cgene.
This gene is a member of the SMCY homolog family and encodes a protein with one ARID domain, one JmjC domain, one JmjN domain and two PHD-type zinc fingers. The DNA-binding motifs suggest this protein is involved in the regulation of transcription and chromatin remodeling. Mutations in this gene have been associated with X-linked mental retardation. Alternatively spliced variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described but the full-length nature of only one has been determined.
