MZF-1 Binds to target promoter DNA and functions as transcription regulator. Regulates transcription from the PADI1 and CDH2 promoter. May be one regulator of transcriptional events during hemopoietic development. Belongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Preferentially expressed in differentiating myeloid cells. Detected in osteoblasts. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
