Definitions of gag fos fox Fusion Proteins

  1. Transforming proteins coded by fos oncogenes. These proteins have been found in the Finkel- Biskis- Jinkins ( FBJ- MSV) and Finkel- Biskis- Reilly ( FBR- MSV) murine sarcoma viruses which induce osteogenic sarcomas in mice. The FBJ- MSV v- fos gene encodes a p55 kD protein and the FBR- MSV v- fos gene encodes a p75 kD fusion protein.
