Forkhead box protein F1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FOXF1 gene.[1][2][3]

This gene belongs to the forkhead family of transcription factors which is characterized by a distinct forkhead domain. The specific function of this gene has not yet been determined; however, it may play a role in the regulation of pulmonary genes as well as embryonic development.[3]
