Immunogen A synthetic peptide from the n-terminal region of human OLIG2 (Oligo2, bHLHB1, RACK17) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen. The antigen is homologous in rat and mouse.
Isotype IgG
Specificity Appears to be specific for OLIG2.
Purification Purified mouse LN T cells
Purity IgG
Alternative Name OLIG2 (Oligo2, bHLHB1, RACK17)
Background 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.
Subcellular location: Nucleus. Cytoplasm
Tissue specificity: Expressed in the brain, in oligodendrocytes. Strongly expressed in oligodendrogliomas, while expression is weak to moderate in astrocytomas. Expression in glioblastomas highly variable. Involvement in disease: A chromosomal aberration involving OLIG2 may be a cause of a form of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Translocation t(14,21)(q11.2,q22) with TCRA. Also known as: Basic helix loop helix protein class B 1, BHLHB1, olig2, OLIGO2, Oligodendrocyte specific bHLH transcription factor 2, Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2, PRKCBP2, Protein kinase C binding protein 2, Protein kinase C binding protein RACK17, RACK17.
UniProt Q13516
Application Notes IHC, WB. A concentration of 10-50 µg/ml is recommended. The optimal concentration should be determined by the end user. Not yet tested in other applications.
