ZC3H12D, also known as MCPIP4, is a member of a family of novel CCCH-zinc finger proteins that includes ZC3H12A, a protein that is thought to be involved in macrophage activation, host immunity and inflammatory diseases. ZC3H12D is highly expressed in spleen, intestine, and colon. Similar to ZC3H12A and ZC3H12C, ZC3H12D expression in murine macrophages is also increased after treatment with lipopolysaccharide (LPS), although not to the same level as ZC3H12A. This pattern of expression was not duplicated in human-derived macrophages, suggesting it also may play a different role in host immunity and inflammatory response.
