Gene Description BCL11A, BCL11 transcription factor A, is a zinc finger transcription factor that primarily plays a role in transcriptional repression (PMID: 32625084), with involvement in lymphoid development (PMID: 12717432) and the fetal to adult hemoglobin switch (PMID: 19056937, PMID: 19657335).
