Saturation transfer difference NMR measurements were performed to investigate the interaction of S-adenosyl-l-methionine (AdoMet) with SU(VAR)3-9 from Drosophila melanogaster. SU(VAR)3-9 has a SET domain and plays an important role in methylation of lysine-9 of histone H3 which results in gene silencing. We determined the binding epitope of AdoMet and compared it with a crystal structure of another SET protein.
