Immunogen BALB/C mice injected with synthetic peptide of human OCT-4 origin.
Clone NRG1-1
Isotype IgG2b
Specificity OCT-4 immunostaining has been shown to be a sensitive and specific marker for seminomatous / (dys)germinomatous tumours and in embryonal carcinoma variants of non-seminomatous GCTs, whether in primary gonadal or extragonadal sites or in metastatic lesions.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Species reactivity (tested):Human.
Characteristics Synonyms: POU5F1, OCT3, OCT4, OTF3, POU domain, class 5, transcription factor 1, Octamer-bindingtranscription factor 3, Oct-3, Oct-4
Purification Purified
Alternative Name OCT3/4
Background OCT-4 (also known as POU5F1), a transcription factor that has been recognized as fundamental in the maintenance of pluripotency in embryonic stem cells and primordial germ cells, has been proposed as a useful marker for Germ Cell Tumors (GCTs) that exhibit features of pluripotentiality, specifically seminoma / dysgerminoma / germinoma and embryonal carcinoma.Synonyms: OCT3, OCT4, OTF3, Oct-3, Oct-4, Octamer-binding transcription factor 3, POU domain, POU5F1, class 5, transcription factor 1
Gene ID 5460
UniProt Q01860
Application Notes Suitable for Immunohistochemistry on Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections: 1/25-1/100 in an ABC method. Positive Control: Seminoma. Cellular Localization: Nuclear.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
Protocol Staining ProtocolWe suggest an incubation period of 30 minutes at room temperature. However, dependingupon the fixation conditions and the staining system employed, optimal incubation should be determined by the end user. Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections require
