Protein Information
Name OLIG1
Synonyms BHLHB6, BHLHE21
Function Promotes formation and maturation of oligodendrocytes, especially within the brain. Cooperates with OLIG2 to establish the pMN domain of the embryonic neural tube (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00981}
Tissue Location Expressed in the brain, in oligodendrocytes. Strongly expressed in oligodendrogliomas, while expression is weak to moderate in astrocytomas. Expression in glioblastomas is highly variable.

The oligodendrocyte transcription factors 1 and 2 (OLIG1 and OLIG2, respectively) make up part of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family of transcription factors that are specifically expressed in zones of the neuroepithelium from which oligodendrocyte precursors emerge (1). Both OLIG1 and OLIG2 genes are downstream targets of Sonic hedgehog and are expressed exclusively in the central nervous system (2). OLIG1 is first expressed in the dorsal portion of the p3 progenitor domain of the ventral neural tube while OLIG2 is first observed in the ventral most p3 domain (2). OLIG1 has been shown to be a SMAD cofactor involved in cell motility induced by transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) (3).
