Histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3) is often stated as a mark of transcriptionally active promoters. However, closer study of the positioning of H3K4me3 shows the mark locating primarily after the first exon at the 5′ splice site and overlapping with a CpG island in mammalian cells. There are several enzyme complexes that are involved in the placement of the H3K4me3 mark, including multiple protein complexes containing SETD1A, SETD1B, and MLL1 enzymes (writers). CXXC1, which is associated with SETD1A and SETD1B, target these enzymes to unmethylated CpG islands. Lysine demethylases (KDM5 family members, erasers) demethylate H3K4me3. The H3K4me3 mark is recognized by several proteins (readers), including lysine acetyltransferase complexes, chromatin remodelers, and RNA bound proteins involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Interestingly, attenuation of H3K4me3 impacts pre-mRNA splicing, and inhibition of pre-mRNA splicing attenuates H3K4me3.
