Summaries for FOSL1 Gene

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 Pfeiffer Syndrome. Among its related pathways are HTLV-I infection and Toll-Like receptor Signaling Pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOSL2.
