KDM5C or lysine (K)-specific demethylase 5C is a member of the SMCY homolog family that encodes a protein with one ARID domain, one JmjC domain, one JmjN domain and two PHD-type zinc fingers. KDM5C is mainly expressed in brain and skeletal muscle. KDM5C is involved in the regulation of transcription and chromatin remodelling that cause X-linked mental retardation (1). KDM5C is also essential for spermatogenesis and expression of male-specific minor histocompatibility antigens (2).
