Definition: Zinc finger protein 217, also known as ZNF217, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the ZNF217 gene.


ZNF217 can attenuate apoptotic signals resulting from telomere dysfunction and may promote neoplastic transformation and later stages of malignancy.

Znf217 was shown to be a prognostic biomarker and therapeutic target during breast cancer progression.
