Zinc finger protein 423 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZNF423 gene.[1][2][3]

The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear protein that belongs to the family of Kruppel-like C2H2 zinc finger proteins. It functions as a DNA-binding transcription factor by using distinct zinc fingers in different signaling pathways. Thus, it is thought that this gene may have multiple roles in signal transduction during development.[3]



ZNF423 has been shown to interact with EBF1[4] and PARP1.[5]
