ZF Class
Families List  Genes List
Genes in the ZF (zinc finger) class encode proteins with zinc finger motifs in addition to one or more homeodomains. There are 14 members of the ZF homeobox gene class in the human genome (plus one pseudogene), which can be divided into five distinct gene families. There are many additional zinc finger-containing genes in the human genome that do not contain homeobox sequences; these are not included in the ZF homeobox gene class. As argued by Holland et al. (2007), it is logical to include the HOMEZ gene in the ZF class, even though it does not encode zinc fingers, because its homeodomain sequences are clearly related to those encoded by some of the ZF genes. Amphioxus has five ZF-class genes.
