Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ZNF879 Gene
This gene encodes a kruppel-associated box-containing zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP). The encoded protein contains an N-terminal kruppel-associated box (KRAB) domain and thirteen C-terminal C2H2-type zinc finger domains. The KRAB-ZFPs represent the largest family of mammalian transcriptional repressors, which function through the recruitment of the nuclear co-factor KRAB-Associated Protein 1 (KAP1), to engage histone modifiers and induce heterochromatin formation.
