Summaries for ZFAT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZFAT Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that likely binds DNA and functions as a transcriptional regulator involved in apoptosis and cell survival. This gene resides in a susceptibility locus for autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) on chromosome 8q24. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for ZFAT Gene

ZFAT (Zinc Finger And AT-Hook Domain Containing) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZFAT include Autoimmune Thyroid Disease 3 and Croup. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and transcriptional activator activity, RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZNF408.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZFAT Gene

  • May be involved in transcriptional regulation. Overexpression causes down-regulation of a number of genes involved in the immune response. Some genes are also up-regulated (By similarity).
