Description

Description: zinc finger protein 124 [Source:HGNC Symbol;Acc:HGNC:12907]
Entrez Summary This gene encodes a protein with an amino-terminal KRAB-A box and multiple repeated Kruppel-type (C2H2) zinc finger motifs at its carboxy terminus. The encoded protein may function as a transcription factor. Expression of this gene is increased after vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) stimulation in human leukemia cell lines and results in inhibition of apoptotic cell death induced by irradiation or exposure to etoposide. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]

Source Annotation
TF-CAT classification No
PMIDS:
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.
b
CisBP considers it as a TF? Yes
TFclass considers it as a TF? Yes
Has GO:0003700 "transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding" No
GO-Info
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
