An oncogene carried by the Fujinami sarcoma virus, which causes the development of sarcoma tumors in chickens. It is homologous to the fes oncogene found in cats. The normal product of the gene (as a proto-oncogene) seems to be a kinase enzyme that phosphorylates (attaches phosphate groups to) the amino acid tyrosine in polypeptides.
