Human Gene ZNF879 (uc003mjt.4) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens zinc finger protein 879 (ZNF879), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_001136116): This gene encodes a kruppel-associated box-containing zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP). The encoded protein contains an N-terminal kruppel-associated box (KRAB) domain and thirteen C-terminal C2H2-type zinc finger domains. The KRAB-ZFPs represent the largest family of mammalian transcriptional repressors, which function through the recruitment of the nuclear co-factor KRAB-Associated Protein 1 (KAP1), to engage histone modifiers and induce heterochromatin formation.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on B4DU55
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
