GeneCards Summary for ZNF93 Gene
ZNF93 (Zinc Finger Protein 93) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ZNF253.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZNF93 Gene
Transcription factor specifically required to repress long interspersed nuclear element 1 (L1) retrotransposons: recognizes and binds L1 sequences and repress their expression by recruiting a repressive complex containing TRIM28/KAP1 (PubMed:25274305). Not able to repress expression of all subtypes of L1 elements. Binds to the 5 end of L1PA4, L1PA5 and L1PA6 subtypes, and some L1PA3 subtypes. Does not bind to L1PA7 or older subtypes nor at the most recently evolved L1PA2 and L1Hs. 50% of L1PA3 elements have lost the ZNF93-binding site, explaining why ZNF93 is not able to repress their expression (PubMed:25274305).
