Zinc finger protein 655 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZNF655 gene.[1][2][3]

This gene encodes a zinc finger protein. The zinc finger proteins are involved in DNA binding and protein-protein interactions. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene.[3]
