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 1, AP-1 Transcription Factor Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FOSL1 include T-Cell Leukemia and Pfeiffer Syndrome. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FOSL2.
