Welcome to the ZC4H2 Research Foundation website. ZC4H2 is an extremely rare genetic disorder which affects children in many dramatic ways and has a profound effect on their quality of life as well as that of their families. The Foundation aims to promote research into this condition in the hope of improving the lives of those affected by it and perhaps even find a cure.
What is ZC4H2 Deficiency?
ZC4H2 stands for “Zinc finger C4H2-type”. ZC4H2 is a gene located on the X-chromosome. This gene encodes a protein which is a member of the so-called zinc finger domain-containing protein family. There is currently very limited understanding about the ZC4H2 gene and its protein function.
