Immunogen Synthetic peptide mapping to the N-terminus of mouse Oct-4
Blocking Peptide Blocking peptide for this product available: ABIN412859
Isotype IgG
Specificity 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.
Purification Affinity purified
Alternative Name 4-Oct
Background 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.
Synonyms: MGC22487, OCT3, OTF3, OTF4, Oct4 , POU5F1 , Oct-3
Gene ID 18999
UniProt P20263
Application Notes Western blotting (0.5-4 μg/mL), Immunoprecipitation (20 μg/mL) and Immunohistochemistry (20 μg/mL).
Rat kidney tissue lysate can be used as a positive control.
However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
