This gene encodes a zinc finger protein involved in the regulation of c-myc. The symbol MIZ1 has also been associated with PIAS2 which is a different gene located on chromosome 18. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ZBTB17 Gene
ZBTB17 (Zinc Finger And BTB Domain Containing 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell cycle and Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZBTB48.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZBTB17 Gene
Transcription factor that can function as an activator or repressor depending on its binding partners, and by targeting negative regulators of cell cycle progression. Plays a critical role in early lymphocyte development, where it is essential to prevent apoptosis in lymphoid precursors, allowing them to survive in response to IL7 and undergo proper lineage commitment. Has been shown to bind to the promoters of adenovirus major late protein and cyclin D1 and activate transcription. Required for early embryonic development during gastrulation. Represses RB1 transcription; this repression can be blocked by interaction with ZBTB49 isoform 3/ZNF509S1 (PubMed:25245946).
