Summaries for ZNF117 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZNF117 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein containing multiple C2H2-type zinc finger motifs. Readthrough transcription occurs between this gene and the upstream endogenous retrovirus group 3 member 1 (ERV3-1) locus, and may result in additional transcript variants encoding the zinc finger protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
