B-cell CLL/lymphoma 6 (zinc finger protein 51), also known as BCL6, is a human gene.

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcription factor and contains an N-terminal POZ domain. This protein acts as a sequence-specific repressor of transcription, and has been shown to modulate the transcription of START-dependent IL-4 responses of B cells. This protein can interact with a variety of POZ-containing proteins that function as transcription corepressors. This gene is found to be frequently translocated and hypermutated in diffuse large-cell lymphoma (DLCL), and may be involved in the pathogenesis of DLCL. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode the identical protein have been reported for this gene.
