Forkhead box protein G1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FOXG1 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 development of the brain and telencephalon.[3]

Interactions[edit]

FOXG1 has been shown to interact with JARID1B.[4]
