Disorders for ZNF703 Gene


  • Note=Luminal B breast cancers are the clinically more aggressive estrogen receptor-positive tumors. Amplification of a distal 8p12 locus occurs in around one third of the cases and ZNF703 is the single gene within the minimal amplicon. Amplification of the gene correlates with its protein expression in tumor cells. ZNF703 is a classical breast cancer oncogene since it is able to transform non-malignant cells and increase cellular proliferation.
