Gene: Unk (unkempt family zinc finger) Mus musculus
Symbol: Unk
Name: unkempt family zinc finger
Description: Exhibits mRNA CDS binding activity and polysome binding activity. Involved in cell morphogenesis involved in neuron differentiation; in utero embryonic development; and neuron migration. Predicted to localize to polysome. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; oocyte; and retina nuclear layer. Orthologous to human UNK (unk zinc finger); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; carbon nanotube; methamphetamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: B230379M23Rik; mKIAA1753; RING finger protein unkempt homolog; unkempt homolog; Unkh; Zc3h5; Zc3hdc5; zinc finger CCCH domain-containing protein 5; zinc finger CCCH type containing 5; zinc finger CCCH type domain containing 5
