Gene: FOXN4 (forkhead box N4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FOXN4
Name: forkhead box N4
Description: Members of the winged-helix/forkhead family of transcription factors, such as FOXN4, are characterized by a 110-amino acid DNA-binding domain that can fold into a variant of the helix-turn-helix motif consisting of 3 alpha helices flanked by 2 large loops or wings. These transcription factors are involved in a variety of biologic processes as key regulators in development and metabolism (Li et al., 2004 [PubMed 15363391]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
