Zinc finger protein 638
The protein encoded by this gene is a nucleoplasmic protein. It binds cytidine-rich sequences in double-stranded DNA. This protein has three types of domains: MH1, MH2 (repeated three times) and MH3. It is associated with packaging, transferring, or processing transcripts. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene, but the biological validity of some variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Human NP220 (hNP220) is a novel DNA-binding nuclear protein, which has an arginine/serine-rich motif and polypyrimidine tract-binding motif, and NP220s and matrin 3 are thought to form a novel family of nuclear proteins.
