  • FunctionTranscription regulator that plays a central role in heart morphogenesis and development of coronary vessels from epicardium, by regulating genes that are essential during cardiogenesis. Essential cofactor that acts via the formation of a heterodimer with transcription factors of the GATA family GATA4, GATA5 and GATA6. Such heterodimer can both activate or repress transcriptional activity, depending on the cell and promoter context. Also required in gonadal differentiation, possibly be regulating expression of SRY. Probably acts a corepressor of NR2F2.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed at low level.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ZFPM2 may be a cause of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) [MIM:187500]. TOF is a congenital heart anomaly which consists of pulmonary stenosis, ventricular septal defect, dextroposition of the aorta (aorta is on the right side instead of the left) and hypertrophy of the right ventricle. This condition results in a blue baby at birth due to inadequate oxygenation. Surgical correction is emergent.
    Defects in ZFPM2 are the cause of diaphragmatic hernia 3 (DIH3) [MIM:610187]; a form of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). CDH refers to a group of congenital defects in the structural integrity of the diaphragm associated with often lethal pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the FOG (Friend of GATA) family.
    Contains 3 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 5 C2HC-type zinc fingers.
  • DomainThe CCHC-type zinc fingers 1, 5, 6 and 8 directly bind to GATA-type zinc fingers. The Tyr residue adjacent to the last Cys of the CCHC-type zinc finger is essential for the interaction with GATA-type zinc fingers.
