ZEB1

ZEB1

A gene on chromosome 10p11.22 that encodes a zinc finger transcription factor thought to play a role in transcriptional repression of IL-2.

Molecular pathology
ZEB1 mutations are associated with posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy-3 and late-onset Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy.

For some transcription factors such as STAT1, AR, HLF, ZEB1, TCF21, ISL1, KLF6, HOXB13, SIM2 and FOXA1, the number of interactions in the metastasis stage decreased dramatically (Table 3); the interaction numbers of other transcription factors, such as ZNF-529, FOXC1, MNX1, and JUNB, increased considerably in the metastasis stage, indicating network rewiring (Table 3).
