CARM1 (coactivator-associated arginine methyltransferase 1) is an enzyme (EC encoded by the CARM1 gene found in human beings, as well as many other mammals.[1] CARM1 is a secondary coactivator through its association with p160 family (SRC-1, GRIP1, AIB) of coactivators. It is responsible for moving cells toward the inner cell mass in developing blastocysts.[2] This gene also plays an important role in androgen receptors and may play a role in prostate cancer progression.[3][4]
