Lan et al. show that the transcription factor ZNF410 has a single direct target gene, the NuRD component CHD4, through which it silences the fetal-type β-globin genes in adult erythroid cells. The exquisite specificity of ZNF410 could be exploited therapeutically for treatment of hemoglobinopathies.
