General Comments
WDR5 is involved in the formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes eg the histone acetyltransferase complex and the histone methyltransferase complex [3-4]. Members of the WD repeat-containing protein family are involved in many cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. WDR5 is reported to associate with the long non-coding RNA HOTTIP which drives histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation and gene transcription [2].
