Summaries for ZBTB42 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZBTB42 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the C2H2 zinc finger protein family. This protein is predicted to have a pox virus and zinc finger (POZ) domain at the N-terminus and four zinc finger domains at the C-terminus. In human and mouse, the protein localizes to the nuclei of skeletal muscle cells. Knockdown of this gene in zebrafish results in abnormal skeletal muscle development and myofibrillar disorganization. A novel homozygous variant of the human gene has been associated with lethal congenital contracture syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder that results in muscle wasting.

Disorders for ZBTB42 Gene


  • Lethal congenital contracture syndrome 6 (LCCS6) [MIM:616248]: A form of lethal congenital contracture syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by degeneration of anterior horn neurons, extreme skeletal muscle atrophy and congenital non-progressive joint contractures. The contractures can involve the upper or lower limbs and/or the vertebral column, leading to various degrees of flexion or extension limitations evident at birth. LCCS6 features include severe polyhydramnios and absent stomach, in addition to multiple contracture deformities. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25055871}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
