Quick Reference

A family of transcription factors (hepatocyte nuclear factors) enriched in liver. HNF1 is predominantly expressed in liver and kidney and selectively interacts with the control regions of several liver-specific genes. Heterozygous mutations in hepatocyte nuclear factor (HNF)-1α and HNF-1β result in maturity-onset diabetes of the young.
