Entrez Gene Summary for FOSL1 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. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]

GeneCards Summary for FOSL1 Gene

FOSL1 (FOS-Like Antigen 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOSL1 include breast cancer and glioblastoma multiforme. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOSL2.
