ZBTB38 [ENSP00000426387]

Zinc finger and BTB domain-containing protein 38; Transcriptional regulator with bimodal DNA-binding specificity. Binds with a higher affinity to methylated CpG dinucleotides in the consensus sequence 5'-CGCG-3' but can also bind to E-box elements (5'-CACGTG-3'). Can also bind specifically to a single methyl-CpG pair. Represses transcription in a methyl- CpG-dependent manner. Plays an important role in regulating DNA replication and common fragile sites (CFS) stability in a RBBP6- and MCM10-dependent manner; represses expression of MCM10 which plays an important role in DNA- replication. Acts as a transcriptional activator. May be involved in the differentiation and/or survival of late postmitotic neurons (By similarity); BTB domain containing
