The Drosophila melanogaster homolog of the human proto-oncogene fos is Dfos. It is the only fos homolog in the Drosophila genome. Fos functions as a subunit of the heterodimeric transcription factor AP-1. There are two models of the Dfos gene. The first comes from a cDNA sequence of Dfos (Perkins et al., Genes Dev. 4 (1990) 822). The second is from the gene sequence published by the Drosophila genome project (Adams et al., Science 287 (2000) 2185), and there are notable contradictions between… CONTINUE READING
