To understand possible effects resulting from upregulation of c-FOS or FOSB, we checked the levels of JUN genes (JUN, JUNB and JUND) and found there was no obvious change between the untreated and SLIPS-treated groups (Table 2).
Similar to the pathophysiological mechanisms of migraine, IBS recurrently activates the intestinal nervous system, leading to C-FOS expression in the brain stem and causing central sensitization.
The role of JNK and p38 MAPK activities in UVA-induced signaling pathways leading to AP-1 activation and c-Fos expression.
In addition, according to the researchers, "AP-1 consists of both Fos and Jun genes' family members, which include c-Fos and c-Jun.

Variables within the brain and nervous system include the influence of such mediators as serotonin and other signaling molecules, such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor and the proto-oncogene c-Fos.
The immediate early genes (IEGs) encoded protein c-Fos is considered to be a transcription factor.
We will conduct this research by pinpointing DA neuron populations active during reward situations and their target areas by in vivo calcium imaging analysis and corroborating established focus brain networks by quantifying c-Fos and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) expression by means of in situ hybridization (WP1).
After 1 hr treatment with atrazine, c-fos, CTGF, and cyclin A levels were enhanced, although to a lesser extent than after E2 treatment.
The expression of immediate-early genes such as c-Fos is a marker of neuronal activity.
