Background of ZNF532 antibody
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 KrÃ¼ppel-type DNA binding domain and a KRAB domain, which is thought to interact with KAP1, thereby recruiting histone modifying proteins. As a member of the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family, ZNF532 is a 1301 amino acid nuclear protein that contains twelve C2H2-type zinc fingers. The gene encoding ZNF532 maps to human chromosome 18, which houses over 300 protein-coding genes and contains nearly 76 million bases, representing about 2.5% of total DNA in cells. There are a variety of diseases associated with defects in chromosome 18-localized genes, some of which include Niemann-Pick disease, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, erythropoietic protoporphyria and follicular lymphomas.
