UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ZNF202 Gene
Transcriptional repressor that binds to elements found predominantly in genes that participate in lipid metabolism. Among its targets are structural components of lipoprotein particles (apolipoproteins AIV, CIII, and E), enzymes involved in lipid processing (lipoprotein lipase, lecithin cholesteryl ester transferase), transporters involved in lipid homeostasis (ABCA1, ABCG1), and several genes involved in processes related to energy metabolism and vascular disease.
