Summaries for PRDM7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRDM7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a family of proteins that may have roles in transcription and other nuclear processes. The encoded protein contains a KRAB (Kruppel-associated box) domain -A box and a SET (Su(var)3-9, Enhancer-of-zeste, Trithorax) domain and may function as a histone methyltransferase. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
