FOS gene (FBJ Murine Osteosarcoma Viral Oncogene Homolog)
Do you need the FOS gene to express the FOS protein for functional or characterization studies? Get the FOS gene in an expression-ready vector for your molecular biology studies by ordering a FOS ORF clone.
About the FOS gene
The Fos gene family consists of 4 members: FOS, FOSB, FOSL1, and FOSL2. These genes encode leucine zipper proteins that can dimerize with proteins of the JUN family, thereby forming the transcription factor complex AP-1. As such, the FOS proteins have been implicated as regulators of cell proliferation, differentiation, and transformation. In some cases, expression of the FOS gene has also been associated with apoptotic cell death. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
