UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZNF488 Gene
Transcriptional repressor. Plays a role in oligodendrocyte differentiation, together with OLIG2. Mediates Notch signaling-activated formation of oligodendrocyte precursors. Promotes differentiation of adult neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs) into mature oligodendrocytes and contributes to remyelination following nerve injury.
