Substrate selectivity studies indicate that members of the biomedically important JmjC demethylase family of histone Nε‐methyllysine demethylases are capable of catalyzing the de‐N‐alkylation of groups other than N‐methyl and can catalyze reactions that form stable hydroxylated products. The differences in binding preferences in this set of enzymes may be helpful in the design of selective inhibitors.
