Summaries for KRBOX4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KRBOX4 Gene

  • This encodes a zinc finger protein with an N-terminal KRAB (Kruppel-associated) domain found in transcriptional repressors. This gene is located in a region of the X chromosome thought to be involved in nonsyndromic X-linked mental retardation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
