FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This tumor suppressor gene is a member of a nuclear histone/protein methyltransferase superfamily. It encodes a zinc finger protein that can bind to retinoblastoma protein, estrogen receptor, and the TPA-responsive element (MTE) of the heme-oxygenase-1 gene. Although the functions of this protein have not been fully characterized, it may (1) play a role in transcriptional regulation during neuronal differentiation and pathogenesis of retinoblastoma, (2) act as a transcriptional activator of the heme-oxygenase-1 gene, and (3) be a specific effector of estrogen action. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice have shortened life spans, becoming moribund due to increased incidence of tumors. Mice had a broad spectrum of unusual tumors in multiple organs, with a high incidence of diffuse large B cell lymphomas. [provided by MGI curators]
