Zinc finger with KRAB and SCAN domain 3 (ZKSCAN3) is associated with cell differentiation, cell proliferation and apoptosis, which has been reported as a critical driver of colorectal cancer. However, the mechanism and function of ZKSCAN3 in colorectal cancer is still unclear. Here, our objective is to identify the functional molecules and signaling by analyzing the RNA-seq data. The GSE172201 was created by the Illumina NovaSeq 6000 (Homo sapiens). The KEGG and GO analyses indicated the immune defense response to virus and transcription activity are major processes in the ZKSCAN3 KO colorectal cancer cells. Moreover, we determined ten key molecules including STAT1, MX1, DDX58, PPARG, EGFR, APP, BST2, DLG4, OASL, and IFIT2. Therefore, our study may provide the novel knowledge of ZKSCAN3 mediated colorectal cancer.
