Recently, I have been given an inordinate amount of material concerning
c-fos and fos. Most specifically, c-fos immunoreactivity and the
consequential ability to either assess anatomical landmarks or general
level of transcrption.
Unfoortunately, I am unaware of what purpose fos serves in the cell.
What is the presence, increased or decreased, indicative of? I don't
mean an increase/decreas in transcription but what does the cell use fos
for? I heard a small intro onto some proposed ideas but I didn't walk
away feeling comfortable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My Thanks in Advance
