Purification Purified
Alternative Name OCT3/4 (POU5F1 Antibody Abstract)
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
