ZNF823 is also known as zinc finger protein 823, HSZFP36, and ZFP 36 for a zinc finger protein. It is widely accepted that ZNF823 is involved in transcriptional regulation. ZNF823 can binding various molecules such as metal ion and sequence-specific DNA. It also regulates the activity of RNA polymerase II transcription factor. Moreover, ZNF823 was identified as one of seven master regulator genes in Human Periodontitis.
