This gene encodes a member of the forkhead class of DNA-binding proteins. These hepatocyte nuclear factors are;transcriptional activators for liver-specific transcripts such as albumin and transthyretin, and they also interact;with chromatin. Similar family members in mice have roles in the regulation of metabolism and in the differentiation;of the pancreas and liver. The crystal structure of a similar protein in rat has been resolved.
