Gene: ZFP42 (ZFP42 zinc finger protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ZFP42
Name: ZFP42 zinc finger protein
Description: Predicted to have RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in female gonad development and male gonad development. Localizes to the cytoplasm; INTERACTS WITH all-trans-retinoic acid; antirheumatic drug; arsenite(3-).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
