Additional Information
Gene ID 18999
Application & Usage Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), immunoprecipitation (20 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (20 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody reacts with 45 kDa Oct-4 (also designated Oct-3A) and in a less extent 33 kDa Oct-3B from human, mouse, and rat samples. Rat kidney tissue lysate can be used as a positive control.

Protein Information
Name Pou5f1
Synonyms Oct-3, Oct-4, Otf-3, Otf3
Function Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Forms a trimeric complex with SOX2 on DNA and controls the expression of a number of genes involved in embryonic development such as YES1, FGF4, UTF1 and ZFP206. Critical for early embryogenesis and for embryonic stem cell pluripotency.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00108, ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00530, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17496161, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17525163}. Note=Expressed in a diffuse and slightly punctuate pattern
Tissue Location Expressed the totipotent and pluripotent stem cells of the pregastrulation embryo. Also expressed in primordial germ cells and in the female germ line. Absent from adult tissues

Members of Oct family of transcription factors specifically interact with Octamer motif ATGCAAAT, a regulatory element important for tissue- and cell-specific transcription as well as for transcription of a number of housekeeping genes. All of the members of the Oct family contain two highly conserved domains which are separated by 14-26 variable amino acids. These include the POU homeodomain and the POU-specific domain. Both are required for DNA binding and are involved in protein-protein interactions. Evidences indicate that regulation of Oct family transcription factors occurs at the level of phosphorylation.
