AbstractCardiovascular development during embryogenesis involves complex changes in gene regulatory networks regulated by a variety of transcription factors. In this review we discuss the various reported roles of the SOXF factors: SOX7, SOX17 and SOX18 in cardiac, vascular and lymphatic development. SOXF factors have pleiotropic roles during these processes, and there is significant redundancy and functional compensation between SOXF family members. Despite this, evidence suggests that there is some specificity in the transcriptional programs they regulate which is necessary to control the differentiation and behaviour of endothelial subpopulations. Furthermore, SOXF factors appear to have an indirect role in regulating cardiac mesoderm specification and differentiation. Understanding how SOXF factors are regulated, as well as their downstream transcriptional target genes, will be important for unravelling their roles in cardiovascular development and related diseases.
