ZNF703[1] is a gene which has been linked with the development of breast cancers.[2][3][4]

Following research by scientists at Cancer Research UK, it was the first oncogene discovery in the past five years.[3]

ZNF703 is a part of 8p12 telomeric amplicon that is associated with Luminal B breast cancer. Recently, ZNF703 is identified as the driver of 8p12 locus amplication. [5]
