Summary
This gene encodes a member of the zinc finger domain-containing protein family. This family member has a C-terminal zinc finger domain that is characterized by four cysteine residues and two histidine residues, and it also includes a coiled-coil region. This protein has been detected as an autoantigen in hepatocellular carcinoma patients. This gene has been identified as a potential candidate for X-linked cognitive disability. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks a portion of the 5' coding region, and uses a downstream in-frame start codon, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (2) has a distinct N-terminus and is shorter than isoform 1. Both variants 2 and 4 encode the same isoform.

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (5) uses an alternate splice site in the 5' region, compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the supported start codon, as used by variant 1, renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
