Summaries for ZNF160 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZNF160 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a Kruppel-related zinc finger protein which is characterized by the presence of an N-terminal repressor domain, the Kruppel-associated box (KRAB). The KRAB domain is a potent repressor of transcription; thus this protein may function in transcription regulation. Multiple transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
