Additional Information
Gene ID 10215
Target/Specificity OLIG2; OLIG2 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. It is predicted to not cross-react with other members of the OLIG family of proteins. At least three isoforms of OLIG2 are known to exist; this antibody will detect all three isoforms.
Reconstitution & Storage OLIG2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.
PrecautionsOLIG2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name OLIG2
Function Required for oligodendrocyte and motor neuron specification in the spinal cord, as well as for the development of somatic motor neurons in the hindbrain. Cooperates with OLIG1 to establish the pMN domain of the embryonic neural tube. Antagonist of V2 interneuron and of NKX2-2-induced V3 interneuron development (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00981}. Cytoplasm. Note=The NLS contained in the bHLH domain could be masked in the native form and translocation to the nucleus could be mediated by interaction either with class E bHLH partner protein or with NKX2-2
Tissue Location Expressed in the brain, in oligodendrocytes. Strongly expressed in oligodendrogliomas, while expression is weak to moderate in astrocytomas. Expression in glioblastomas 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). OLIG2 is first observed in the ventral most p3 progenitor domain of the ventral neural tube while OLIG1 is first expressed in the dorsal portion of the p3 domain (2). Mice overexpressing OLIG2 exhibit impaired potassium channel expression in neural progenitors and proliferation of these cells similar to that seen in Down Syndrome, suggesting that OLIG2 may play a role in this pathology (3).
