ZNF711 gene

zinc finger protein 711

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a zinc finger protein of unknown function. It bears similarity to a zinc finger protein which acts as a transcriptional activator. This gene lies in a region of the X chromosome which has been associated with mental retardation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Transcription regulator required for brain development. Probably acts as a transcription factor that binds to the promoter of target genes and recruits PHF8 histone demethylase, leading to activate expression of genes involved in neuron development, such as KDM5C.

  • ZNF711-Related X-linked Mental Retardation

From UniProt:

Mental retardation, X-linked, ZNF711-related (MRXZ): A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. [MIM:300803]
