Gene: Zfx (zinc finger protein X-linked) Mus musculus
Symbol: Zfx
Name: zinc finger protein X-linked
Description: Predicted to have DNA binding activity and metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gamete generation; growth; and parental behavior. Predicted to localize to nucleolus and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including 4-cell stage embryo; genitourinary system; ileum; liver; and spleen. Orthologous to several human genes including ZFX (zinc finger protein X-linked); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: X-linked zinc finger protein; Zfx5; Zfx5,6; Zfx6; zinc finger protein X-linked 5; zinc finger protein X-linked 6; zinc finger X-chromosomal protein
