FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] 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.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit reduced expression of several liver-specific and liver-enriched genes, but appear to be phenotypically normal. [provided by MGI curators]
