Description: zinc finger protein 16 [Source:HGNC Symbol;Acc:HGNC:12947]
Entrez Summary The protein encoded by this gene contains multiple tandem zinc finger motifs. The encoded protein is involved in the differentiation of erythroid and megakaryocytic cells. This gene is located in a cluster of related genes on chromosome 8 encoding zinc finger proteins. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2012]

Previous Annotations

Source Annotation
TF-CAT classification No
Vaquerizas 2009 TF classification
"a" Has direct evidence of TF function;
"b" Has evidence for an orthologous TF;
"c" contains likely DBDs, but has no functional evidence;
"x" is an unlikely TF such as predicted gene, genes with likely non-specific DBDs or that have function outside transcription;
"other" category contains proteins without clear DBDs they curated from external sources.
CisBP considers it as a TF? Yes
TFclass considers it as a TF? Yes
Has GO:0003700 "transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding" Yes

Initial Assessment
1a1 Protein has a high confidence PWM (HT-SELEX, PBM or B1H model) or there is a crystal structure that supports sequence specific DNA binding;
1a2 There is high confidence data for a close ortholog (as defined in CisBP);
2a1 There is lower confidence direct evidence, such as a Jaspar, Hocomoco or Transfac model;
2a2 There is lower confidence evidence for an close ortholog;
3a There is decent circumstantial evidence for its role as a TF or not;
4a Two or more datasets predict it as a TF;
5a One of the source datasets predicts is as a TF
1a1, Direct HQ evidence
TF has conditional DNA-binding requirements
