Forkhead (FH) domain found in Forkhead box protein L1 (FOXL1) and similar proteins
FOXL1, also called Forkhead-related protein FKHL11 or Forkhead-related transcription factor 7 (FREAC-7), acts as a transcription factor required for proper proliferation and differentiation in the gastrointestinal epithelium. It may play a critical role in suppressing tumorigenesis. The FH domain is a winged helix DNA-binding domain. FOX transcription factors recognize the core sequence 5'-(A/C)AA(C/T)A-3'.
