c-Fos is a member of a family of immediate early gene (IEG) transcription factors (other members include Jun and Egr-1) also identified as proto-oncogenes. The basal expression of c-Fos and other IEGs is typically low but increases relatively quickly and often dramatically (15-30 min for mRNA; 30-60 min for protein) in response to changes in cellular activity typically caused by external stimuli, such as stress or neuronal activation. Thus, these IEGs are being used to indicate specific activity driven cellular activation including the identification of neurons activated by various growth factors, neuroactive drugs, and correlated changes in behavioral or physiological states.
This antibody recognizes the N-terminus of c-Fos.
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of human c-Fos.
