Identification and characterization of a novel murine multigene family containing a PHD-finger-like motif.

The genes Phf5a and Phf5b-ps are the first two members of a novel murine multigene family that is highly conserved during evolution and belongs to the superfamily of PHD-finger genes. The Phf5 gene family contains an active locus on mouse chromosome 15, region E and several processed pseudogenes on different chromosomes. The active locus, Phf5a, is… (More)
