High impact information on FOS

  • Repeated exposures to IGF-I attenuated c-fos transcriptional activity with a temporal coincidence of 90% repression and maximal FOS protein levels [1].
  • The results also show that the IGHG2 locus, which is linked to NP and FOS on human chromosome 14, is separated from these genes in cattle [2].
