Zinc finger protein 239 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZNF239 gene.[1][2][3]

MOK2 proteins are DNA- and RNA-binding proteins that are mainly associated with nuclear RNP components, including the nucleoli and extranucleolar structures (Arranz et al., 1997).[supplied by OMIM][3]


ZNF239 has been shown to interact with LMNA.[4]
