Lysine-specific demethylase 6A also known as Ubiquitously transcribed tetratricopeptide repeat, X chromosome (UTX), is a protein which in humans is encoded by the KDM6A gene.[3][4][5]

Function[edit]

UTX has been linked with demethylation of lysine residues on histone, in particular H3K27, resulting in a gene de-repression, a potential means of regulating cellular metabolism.[6]
