UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZNF568 Gene
Has transcriptional repression activity, together with the corepressor TRIM28. Essential during embryonic development, where it regulates convergent extension movements required for axis elongation and tissue morphogenesis in all germ layers. Also important for normal morphogenesis of extraembryonic tissues including the yolk sac, extraembryonic mesoderm and placenta. May enhance proliferation or maintenance of neural stem cells.
