UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZSCAN10 Gene
Embryonic stem (ES) cell-specific transcription factor required to maintain ES cell pluripotency. Can both activate and /or repress expression of target genes, depending on the context. Specifically binds the 5-[GA]CGCNNGCG[CT]-3 DNA consensus sequence. Regulates expression of POU5F1/OCT4, ZSCAN4 and ALYREF/THOC4 (By similarity).
