Summaries for ZNF597 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZNF597 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with multiple zinc finger domains. Loss of the related gene in rodents results in defects in neural development and embryonic lethality in mutant homozygotes. This gene is adjacent to a differentially methylated region (DMR) and is imprinted and maternally expressed. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
