Description Oct4: octamer-binding transcription factor-4 (Oct-4, Otf-4) and Oct-3/4, also known as POU5F1(POU class 5 homeobox 1), octamerbinding transcription factor-3 (Oct-3, Otf-3), modulates embryonic stem (ES) cell populations by influencing lineage commitment. Entrez Protein NP_002692. Oct-3/4 sustains stem-cell selfrenewal and differentiation pathways. Transcription factors containing the POU homeodomain regulate tissue-specific gene expression in lymphoid and pituitary differentiation and in early mammalian development. Oct-3/4 is capable of inducing rapid proliferation and tumorigenic properties of ES cells through activation of the UTF1 gene. In humans, two Oct-3/4 isoforms contribute to influencing the undifferentiated phenotype of ES cells. Oct-3/4 pseudogenes localizing to human chromosomes 10 and 8 are reported to be transcribed in certain cancer cell lines and tissues.
Immunogen Purified recombinant fragment of Oct4 (aa193-360) expressed in E. Coli.
Formulation Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.

Protein Information
Name POU5F1
Synonyms OCT3, OCT4, 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. Note=Expressed in a diffuse and slightly punctuate pattern
Tissue Location Expressed in developing brain. Highest levels found in specific cell layers of the cortex, the olfactory bulb, the hippocampus and the cerebellum. Low levels of expression in adult tissues.
