    Summary
    This gene encodes a zinc finger containing protein that functions in the regulation of transcription. This protein was identified as an interacting partner of transcriptional repressor protein Yy1, and also interacts with other transcriptional regulators, including Myc and Polycomb. This protein can promote proteolysis of Yy1. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

    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.

    1. NR_135139.2 RNA Sequence

      Status: REVIEWED

      Description
      Transcript Variant: This variant (6) contains two alternate internal exons compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most expected translational start codon, as used in variant 1, renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
