Day 238 has 20 protein-coding genes (browser view) including JMJD1C (jumonji domain containing 1C).

This protein is named for a jumonji domain, which per the discoverers:

The gene was named for the morphology produced by the normal neural groove and abnormal grooves on the neural plates of jmj mutant mice. The morphology resembles a cross, and “jumonji” means cruciform in Japanese.

Many jumonji-domain proteins work to regulate DNA epigenetically, but for many the function is unknown.
