Background: This gene encodes a protein containing a PHD (plant homeodomain) type zinc finger. This gene has been identified in some studies as a candidate gene for asthma. Naturally-occurring readthrough transcription may occur from the upstream SETDB2 (SET domain bifurcated 2) gene to this locus. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
