|Precautions||POU3F2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BRN2, OCT7, OTF7|
|Function||Transcription factor that plays a key role in neuronal differentiation (By similarity). Binds preferentially to the recognition sequence which consists of two distinct half-sites, ('GCAT') and ('TAAT'), separated by a non-conserved spacer region of 0, 2, or 3 nucleotides (By similarity). The combination of three transcription factors, ASCL1, POU3F2/BRN2 and MYT1L, is sufficient to reprogram fibroblasts and other somatic cells into induced neuronal (iN) cells in vitro. Acts downstream of ASCL1, accessing chromatin that has been opened by ASCL1, and promotes transcription of neuronal genes (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed specifically in the neuroectodermal cell lineage|

POU3F2 Antibody: POU3F2, also commonly known as brain-2, is a member of a family of POU domain genes expressed in mouse brain and is thought to be involved in the development of the neocortex and establishment of neural cell lineage. Recent studies suggest that POU3F2 may be involved with the development of neurodegenerative diseases as well as tumor development and proliferation. Along with the neural-lineage-specific transcription factors ASCL1 and MYT1L, POU3F2 can convert fibroblasts to functional neurons in vitro, a form of artificial stem cells termed induced neuronal (iN) cells, suggesting that these cells may be useful in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
