Oct4 (Octamer binding transcription factor 4) is an important marker of the undifferentiated state and central regulator of pluripotency in ES cells. When embryonic stem cells are triggered to differentiate, Oct4 is downregulated, thus providing a model for the early events linked to somatic differentiation in the developing embryo. Oct4 is a nuclear protein, with a predicted molecular weight of 39 kD.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ChIP. For ChIP, the suggested use of this reagent is 1:50 to 1:100 by volume. For Western blotting, the suggested working dilution(s): Use 0.5 µg/ml antibody dilution buffer for each mini-gel. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

AB_2716041 (BioLegend Cat. No. 653714)
- Belongs to the POU transcription factor family, predicted molecular weight of 39 kD
Nuclear protein, expressed in undifferentiated embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells, embryonic stem (ES) cells and embryonic germ (EG) cells
- Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Oct4 is a prime candidate for an early developmental control gene. It also is an important marker of the undifferentiated state and central regulator of pluripotency in ES cells.
