Gene Symbol KMT2A
Synonyms ALL-1 | ALL1 | CXXC7 | HRX | HTRX | HTRX1 | MLL | MLL1 | MLL1A | TRX1 | WDSTS
Gene Description KMT2A, lysine methyltransferase 2A, also referred to as MLL, is a transcriptional coactivator that epigenetically regulates gene transcription via methylation and is primarily associated with hematopoietic and embyronic development (PMID: 26161385). KMT2A translocations are frequently observed in specific leukemias including acute myeloid, acute lymphoblastic, and mixed lineage (PMID: 17957188, PMID: 32243611).


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Variant Impact Protein Effect Variant Description Associated with drug Resistance
act mut unknown gain of function KMT2A act mut indicates that this variant results in a gain of function in the Kmt2a protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
fusion fusion unknown KMT2A fusion indicates a fusion of the KMT2A gene, but the fusion partner is unknown.
inact mut unknown loss of function KMT2A inact mut indicates that this variant results in a loss of function of the Kmt2a protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
mutant unknown unknown KMT2A mutant indicates an unspecified mutation in the KMT2A gene.
rearrange unknown unknown KMT2A rearrangement indicates an unspecified rearrangement of the KMT2A gene.
