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. The FOXP1 gene is a member of a family of transcription factors that control the levels of proteins important for normal development of the embryo before birth and the immune and neurological systems after birth.
