Summaries for ZFP37 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZFP37 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transcription factor that belongs to a large family of zinc finger proteins. A similar protein in mouse is thought to play a role in regulating the structures of the nucleolus and centromere in neurons. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]
