Previous Symbols for CNBP Gene
This gene encodes a nucleic-acid binding protein with seven zinc-finger domains. The protein has a preference for binding single stranded DNA and RNA. The protein functions in cap-independent translation of ornithine decarboxylase mRNA, and may also function in sterol-mediated transcriptional regulation. A CCTG expansion in the first intron of this gene results in myotonic dystrophy type 2. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for CNBP Gene
CNBP (CCHC-Type Zinc Finger, Nucleic Acid Binding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CNBP include nondystrophic myotonia and myotonic dystrophy 2. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and single-stranded RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZCCHC13.
