Summary of "A candidate pathogenic gene, zinc finger gene 217 (ZNF217) may contribute to polycystic ovary syndrome through prostaglandin E2."

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a complex endocrine condition with chronic inflammation. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is a proinflammatory factor with an increased expression in the serum of women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Zinc finger gene 217 (ZNF217) is known as a candidate gene for polycystic ovary syndrome. We aimed to investigate the relationship between ZNF217 and PGE2 in polycystic ovary syndrome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A transcription factor that consists of 8 CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS flanking a central HOMEOBOX. It binds to the 5'-CACCT-3' DNA sequence located within E-BOX ELEMENTS of many genes essential for embryonic growth and development and regulates their activity; it represses transcription of the E-CADHERIN gene. Mutations in the ZEB2 gene are associated with MOWAT-WILSON SYNDROME.

A Krupple-type transcription factor consisting of an N-terminal BTB DOMAIN and nine CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS. It localizes to the nucleus and regulates cell cycle progression and gene expression for tissue development and homeostasis; it may also function as an epigenetic regulator through its interactions with HISTONE DEACETYLASE. Genetic rearrangements involving the ZBTB16 gene are associated with ACUTE PROMYELOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.

The number of copies of a given gene present in the cell of an organism. An increase in gene dosage (by GENE DUPLICATION for example) can result in higher levels of gene product formation. GENE DOSAGE COMPENSATION mechanisms result in adjustments to the level GENE EXPRESSION when there are changes or differences in gene dosage.

A transcriptional activator that contains five adjacent CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS. It functions in the hedgehog signaling pathway and is required for normal embryonic development. Mutations in the GLI2 gene are associated with type 9 HOLOPROSENCEPHALY and type 2 PALLISTER-HALL SYNDROME.

An Sp transcription factor that contains three CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS. It binds to GC RICH SEQUENCES and performs an essential function in regulating gene expression for differentiation of OSTEOBLASTS. Mutations in the SP7 gene are associated with type 12 OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA.
