Summaries for ZSCAN4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZSCAN4 Gene

  • The ZSCAN4 gene encodes a protein involved in telomere maintenance and with a key role in the critical feature of mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells, namely, defying cellular senescence and maintaining normal karyotype for many cell divisions in culture (Zalzman et al., 2010 [PubMed 20336070]).[supplied by OMIM, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ZSCAN4 Gene

ZSCAN4 (Zinc Finger And SCAN Domain Containing 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZSCAN4 include Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy 1. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZSCAN4 Gene

  • Embryonic stem (ES) cell-specific transcription factor required to regulate ES cell pluripotency. Binds telomeres and plays a key role in genomic stability in ES cells by regulating telomere elongation. Acts as an activator of spontaneous telomere sister chromatid exchange (T-SCE) and telomere elongation in undifferentiated ES cells (By similarity).
