Down-regulation of the forkhead transcription factor Foxp1 is required for monocyte differentiation and macrophage function.
Down-regulation of the forkhead transcription factor Foxp1 by integrin engagement controls monocyte differentiation in vitro. To determine whether Foxp1 plays a critical role in monocyte differentiation and macrophage functions in vivo, we generated transgenic mice (macFoxp1tg) overexpressing human FOXP1 in monocyte/macrophage lineage cells using the CD68 promoter. Circulating blood monocytes from macFoxp1tg mice have reduced expression of the receptor for macrophage colony-stimulating factor...Expand abstract
