||FUNCTION: Nuclear phosphoprotein which forms a tight but non-covalently linked complex with the JUN/AP-1 transcription factor. Has a critical function in regulating the development of cells destined to form and maintain the skeleton. It is thought to have an important role in signal transduction, cell proliferation and differentiation. SUBUNIT: Heterodimer. Interacts with DSIPI; this interaction inhibits the binding of active AP1 to its target DNA. Interacts with MAFB. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. INDUCTION: C-fos expression increases upon a variety of stimuli, including growth factors, cytokines, neurotransmitters, polypeptide hormones, stress and cell injury. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the bZIP family. Fos subfamily. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 bZIP domain

||A synthetic peptide (MFSGFNADYEASSSRC; aa 2-17) conjugated to diphtheria toxoid has been used as the immunogen. The peptide is homologous with the corresponding sequence derived from cFos protein human, rat, mouse, hamster and cat.
||c-Fos; Proto-oncogene protein cFOS; cellular oncogene fos; G0/G1 switch regulatory protein 7; FOS; G0S7
||Protein G purified.
||IHC: Use at an amount of 10 µg/mL with an incubation time of 1-3 days at 4ºC. This antiserum works in paraffin and 4% PFA fixed frozen sections. Penetration is the key to success. Over-fixed tissue is problematic. Not recommended for western blotting applications. Mouse monoclonal antibody M-1752-100 or rabbit polyclonal antibody R-1751-50 are excellent alternatives for western blotting. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||This antiserum shows a high level of specificity for c-FOS confirmed by immunohistochemistry.
||This antiserum is known to react with rat and rabbit and hamster cFOS.
||If you would like to use this product in another species other than those specified here, or to see the shared identity between the immunogen used here in different speices and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie, only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. Regardless, you can always contact us if you need assistance with this.
||Reconstitute in 500 µl of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20ºC for a higher stability, and at 4ºC with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
