Mouse anti Human OCT4 antibody recognizes the POU domain, class 5, transcription factor 1, also known as POU domain transcription factor OCT4, POU domain, class 5, transcription factor 1, POU-type homeodomain-containing DNA-binding protein, octamer-binding protein 3, octamer-binding protein 4 and octamer-binding transcription factor 3.

The OCT4 gene encodes a transcription factor containing a POU homeodomain. This transcription factor plays a role in embryonic development, especially during early embryogenesis, and it is necessary for embryonic stem cell pluripotency. A translocation of POU5F1 with the Ewing's sarcoma gene, t(6;22)(p21;q12), has been linked to tumor formation. Alternative splicing, as well as usage of alternative translation initiation codons, results in multiple isoforms, one of which initiates at a non-AUG (CUG) start codon. Related pseudogenes have been identified on chromosomes 1, 3, 8, 10, and 12 (provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010).

Mouse anti Human OCT4 antibody detects a band of 45 kDa. The OCT4 antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
