The past decade has seen incredible advances in the field of stem cell biology that have greatly improved our understanding of development and provided important insights into pathological processes. Transcription factors (TFs) play a central role in mediating stem cell proliferation, quiescence, and differentiation. One TF that contributes to these processes is Nuclear Factor One X (NFIX). Recently, NFIX activity has been shown to be essential in multiple organ systems and to have important translational impacts for human health. Here, we describe recent studies showing the contribution of NFIX to muscle development and muscular dystrophies, hematopoiesis, cancer, and neural stem cell biology, highlighting the importance of this knowledge in the development of therapeutic targets.
