ZNF238 is the sequence-specific DNA-binding protein with transcriptional repression activity. ZNF238 binds the consensus DNA sequence 5'-[AC]ACATCTG[GT][AC]-3' which contains the E box core. ZNF238 may play a role in the organization of chromosomes in the nucleus.C2H2-type zinc finger proteins, such as ZNF238, act on the molecular level as transcriptional activators or repressors and are involved in chromatin assembly.
