This gene encodes a zinc finger protein of unknown function. It bears similarity to a zinc finger protein which acts as a transcriptional activator. This gene lies in a region of the X chromosome which has been associated with mental retardation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ZNF711 Gene
ZNF711 (Zinc Finger Protein 711) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZNF711 include mental retardation, x-linked 97 and znf711-related x-linked mental retardation. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZFY.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZNF711 Gene
Transcription regulator required for brain development. Probably acts as a transcription factor that binds to the promoter of target genes and recruits PHF8 histone demethylase, leading to activate expression of genes involved in neuron development, such as KDM5C.
