  FOX proteins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The defining feature of FOX proteins is the forkhead box, a sequence of 80 to 100 amino acids forming a motif that binds to DNA.
One of the most famous FOX protein genes is FOXP2 as it has been implicated in the acquisition of grammatical skills.
Some FOX genes are downstream targets of the hedgehog signaling pathway, which plays a role in the development of basal cell carcinomas.

Fox's experiment was not even welcomed in evolutionist circles, because it was clear that the meaningless amino acid chains that he obtained (which he termed "proteinoids") could not have formed under natural conditions.
Sydney Fox and the other researchers managed to unite the amino acids in the shape of "proteinoids" by using very special heating techniques under conditions which in fact did not exist at all in the primordial stages of Earth.
The difference between proteins and these proteinoids was as huge as the difference between a piece of high-tech equipment and a heap of unprocessed iron.

The forkhead box (Fox) proteins are an extensive family of transcription factors that share homology in the winged helix/forkhead DNA binding domain and play important roles in regulating cellular proliferation, differentiation, longevity and cellular transformation.
Foxm1 regulates transcription of the S-phase kinase-associated protein 2 (Skp2) and CDK subunit 1 (Cks1) genes (10), which are specificity subunits essential for recognition of phosphorylated CDKI proteins p27Kip1 and p21Cip1 by the Skp1-Cullin1-F-box (SCF) ubiquitin ligase complex to target these CDKI proteins for ubiquitin mediated proteasome degradation during the G1/S transition.
Diminished nuclear levels of CDKI proteins p27Kip1 and p21Cip1 are required for stimulating Cdk2-Cyclin E complex activity that cooperates with Cdk4/6-Cyclin D to phosphorylate the Retinoblastoma (RB) protein and activates E2F to stimulate transcription of S-phase genes (7).

 The Harbinger. My Scientific Discussions of Evolution for the Pope and His Scientists
As a result of his monumental discovery of thermal proteins and their self-organization into protocells and that these protocells exhibit virtually all of the properties associated with life, Sid was invited to lecture widely throughout the world.
As a young professor of protein chemistry, I wanted to know if it were possible that amino acids such as had been produced by Herrera, and later by Miller, could yield proteins on the primitive Earth even before there were living cells to make protein.
If we honor thermal protein as the original progenitor, we must recognize that it is not a single substance but rather a family of closely related substances.

 Interactive Fly, Drosophila
In Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO-K1) cultured with serum, the AFX protein fused with green fluorescence protein (AFX-GFP) is localized mainly in the cytoplasm, and wortmannin induces transient nuclear translocation of the fusion protein.
In addition, the signal to FKHR degradation from insulin is mediated by the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase pathway, and mutation of FKHR at the serine or threonine residues phosphorylated by protein kinase B, a downstream target of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, inhibits the ubiquitination in vivo and in vitro.

This protein binds to the downstream enhancer region with higher affinity than PTB, and we believe that it may act as an antirepressor of N1 splicing in the neuronal splicing extract.
Analyses of this protein complex showed that hnRNP H and F bind the GGGGG element, PTB binds to CUCUCU, and that the complex assembles cooperatively, with PTB stimulating the binding of the other proteins.

Transformation by the chimeric protein has essential mechanistic features in common with transformation by Jun. Therefore, differentially regulated targets shared by Jun and by the chimeric protein most likely are relevant in oncogenic transformation.
A genetic analysis of Qin-induced transformation suggests that this transcriptional repressor transforms cells by binding to DNA as a multimeric protein complex consisting of several molecules of Qin, of the corepressor TLE, and of histone deacetylase.
We are evaluating target proteins important for LEF-induced transformation and plan to continue this search for critical proteins responsible for the oncogenic phenotype.
