Interestingly, several companies selling c-fos antibodies are 
currently out of stock - including Cambridge Research Biochemicals
and Oncogene Sciences.  One quote is "the Fos community is in an
uproar!"  they claim they are re-immunizing new animals.  Santa Cruz
Biotechnology and Quality Biotech (distrubutors of National Cancer
Institute monoclonals) are shipping.  Caveat - all antibodies are
individual and recognize different parts of the sequence.  Fos is
getting pretty popular these days.  BTW, a good resource when you
are looking for antibodies is the Linscott Directory.
