FOXL2 forkhead box L2

Also known as: BPES; PFRK; POF3; BPES1; PINTO

Summary

This gene encodes a forkhead transcription factor. The protein contains a fork-head DNA-binding domain and may play a role in ovarian development and function. Expansion of a polyalanine repeat region and other mutations in this gene are a cause of blepharophimosis syndrome and premature ovarian failure 3. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
