Zinc finger protein 202 is a transcription factor first associated with breast cancer. It is a protein that, in humans, is encoded by the ZNF202 gene.[1][2]

Clinical significance[edit]

Variants of this protein have been discovered to be strongly associated with coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis.
