c fos Proteins

Cellular DNA-Binding Proteins encoded by the c-fos Genes (Genes, fos). They are involved in Growth-related transcriptional control. c-fos combines with c-jun (Proto-Oncogene Proteins c-jun) to form a c-fos/c-jun heterodimer (Transcription Factor AP-1) that binds to the TRE (TPA-responsive element) in promoters of certain Genes.
