What is FOXP1 ?

FOXP1 (forkhead box P1) is a gene located on chromosome 3 that everybody carries and is important for the normal functioning of the body. The FOXP1 gene is translated (transcribed) into FOXP1-RNA and then into the FOXP1-protein which carries out the normal body functions of the gene.
