The histone arginine methyltransferase PRMT6 asymmetrically dimethylates histone H3 on arginine residue R2 (R3 when taking into account the initiator methionine), thus creating the H3R2me2a mark on nucleosomes at the ITGA2B gene promoter. Histone H3 arginine methylation by PRMT6 interferes with methylation of H3K4me2 to generate the activating H3K4me3 mark at the ITGA2B gene promoter, thus contributing to transcriptional repression (Herglotz et al. 2013).
