Kruppel-like factor 1

EKLF, erythroid Kruppel-like factor, KLF1
This gene encodes a hematopoietic-specific transcription factor that induces high-level expression of adult beta-globin and other erythroid genes. The zinc-finger protein binds to the DNA sequence CCACACCCT found in the beta hemoglobin promoter. Heterozygous loss-of-function mutations in this gene result in the dominant In(Lu) blood phenotype.

Reciprocal regulation of alternative lineages by Rgs18 and its transcriptional repressor Gfi1b.
Saleque et al., New York City, United States. In J Cell Sci, Feb 2016
These phenotypes reflect the differential impact of Rgs18 on signaling through p38 MAPK family proteins, and ERK1 and ERK2 (also known as MAPK3 and MAPK1, respectively) in the two lineages, which in turn alter the balance between the mutually antagonistic transcription factors Fli1 and Klf1.

Ldb1 complexes: the new master regulators of erythroid gene transcription.
Li et al., Bethesda, United States. In Trends Genet, 2014
Transcription profiling demonstrates that erythropoiesis is mainly controlled by a small group of lineage-restricted transcription factors [Gata binding protein 1 (Gata1), T cell acute lymphocytic leukemia 1 protein (Tal1), and Erythroid Kruppel-like factor (EKLF; henceforth referred to as Klf1)].

KLF1 mutations could make a significant contribution to Hb F variance in malarial regions where hemogobinopathies are common. A single altered KLF1 allele is sufficient to increase Hb F levels.
Putting a finger on the switch.
Bieker, In Nat Genet, 2010
Two new studies show that the KLF1 zinc finger protein uses direct and indirect means to regulate the final switch from fetal to adult globin expression and that monoallelic loss of KLF1 expression leads to persistence of fetal hemoglobin.
