Gene: MORC3 (MORC family CW-type zinc finger 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MORC3
Name: MORC family CW-type zinc finger 3
RGD ID: 1317400
Description: Predicted to have RNA binding activity and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including maintenance of protein location in nucleus; negative regulation of fibroblast proliferation; and protein stabilization. Localizes to PML body.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MORC family CW-type zinc finger protein 3; nuclear matrix protein 2; nuclear matrix protein NXP2; NXP2; ZCW5; ZCWCC3; zinc finger CW-type coiled-coil domain protein 3; zinc finger, CW type with coiled-coil domain 3; zinc finger, CW-type with coiled-coil domain 3
