Zinc-finger proteins contain DNA-binding domains and have a wide variety of functions, most of which encompass some form of transcriptional activation or repression. The majority of zinc-finger proteins contain a KrA1/4ppel-type DNA binding domain and a KRAB domain, which is thought to interact with KAP1, thereby recruiting histone modifying proteins. Zinc finger protein 575 (ZNF575) is a 245 amino acid member of the KrA1/4ppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Localized to the nucleus, ZNF575 contains six C2H2-type zinc fingers through which it is thought to be involved in DNA-binding and transcriptional regulation.
Synonyms: Zinc finger protein 575, ZN575_HUMAN, Znf575.
