Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ZNF215 Gene
This gene is imprinted in a tissue-specific manner with preferential expression in the testis, and encodes a zinc finger protein that belongs to a family of zinc finger transcription factors. The encoded protein contains an N-terminal SRE-ZBP, Ctfin51, AW-1, and Number 18 (SCAN) domain, a kruppel-associated box A (KRABA) domain, and four C-terminal zinc finger domains. This gene is located within one of three regions on chromosome 11p15 associated with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, called Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome chromosome region-2 (BWSCR2), and is thought to play a role in the etiology of this disease.

May be involved in transcriptional regulation.
Bromodomains (BRDs) are epigenetic reader domains that selectively recognize acetylated lysine residues on the tails of histone proteins, and are the only known protein modules that can target acetylated lysine residues.
