RFX1 is a member of the regulatory factor X protein family, which are transcription factors that contain a highly-conserved winged helix DNA binding domain and the D region found in the C-terminal part of these proteins which facilitates dimerization (1,2). RFX1 is structurally related to regulatory factors X2, X3, X4, and X5 (3). RFX1 is a regulatory factor essential for MHC class II genes expression and can bind to an inverted repeat that is required for expression of hepatitis B virus genes (4). Recent study identifies RFX1 may play a tumor suppressor role in HCC as autophagy mediator (5).
