This gene encodes a SCAN box domain-containing protein. The SCAN domain is a highly conserved, leucine-rich motif of approximately 60 aa originally found within a subfamily of zinc finger proteins. This gene belongs to a family of genes that encode an isolated SCAN domain, but no zinc finger motif. This protein binds to and may regulate the function of the transcription factor myeloid zinc finger 1B. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
