Summaries for ZNF174 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZNF174 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with three Cys2-His2-type zinc fingers in the carboxy-terminus, a putative nuclear localization signal, and an amino-terminus SCAN box which forms homodimers. This protein is believed to function as a transcriptional repressor. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]
