Disease relevance of ZFAND5

  • To determine it mutations in ZNF216 might be the cause of hearing loss at the DFNB7/11 locus, we screened the coding region of this gene in DFNB7/11 families by direct sequencing [1].

High impact information on ZFAND5

  • ZNF216 Is an A20-like and IkappaB kinase gamma-interacting inhibitor of NFkappaB activation [2].
  • This search identified ZNF216, a zinc finger protein with unknown biological functions [2].
  • We have determined the cDNA sequence and genomic structure of a novel cochlear-expressed gene, ZNF216, that maps to the DFNB7/11 interval [1].
  • Although ectopic expression of full-length ZNF216 abrogated osteoclast differentiation, its truncated forms accelerated it [3].

Biological context of ZFAND5

  • Our findings suggest that ZNF216 and A20 have redundant and distinct roles in regulating NFkappaB activation and apoptosis [2].
