Lymphoid enhancer-binding factor 1 (LEF1) is a gene
that encodes a transcription factor protein that functions in binding to a site
in the T-cell receptor-alpha enhancer to maximize enhancer activity. The protein may also play a role in hair cell differentiation and
follicle morphogenesis. Missense mutations,
nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are
observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, meningeal cancer, and stomach cancer.
