zinc finger E-box binding homeobox 1; info "posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 3", PPCD3, TCF8, "transcription factor 8 (represses interleukin 2 expression)"
Definition: ZEB1 encodes a zinc finger transcription factor that represses T-lymphocyte-specific IL2 gene (MIM.147680) expression by binding to a negative regulatory domain 100 nucleotides 5-prime of the IL2 transcription start site.
nuclear expression of ZEB1 indicated an adverse outcome. (23190132)
- ZEB1 seems to be the main one associated with adverse clinical presentation and clinical outcome. (23190132)
- Further studies are needed to evaluate whether inhibition of ZEB1 could serve as a therapeutic target. (23190132)
