Oct3/4 Mouse, Brilliant Violet 510, Clone: 40/Oct-3, BD
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 563524
Development of a multicellular organism from a single fertilized cell is regulated by the coordinated activity of DNA transcription factors. Oct3/4, a member of the POU family of transcription factors, functions in pluripotent cells of early embryonic stem cell (ES) lines and embryonal carcinomas (EC). Other members of the POU family include Oct1, Oct2, Pit-1, and unc-86. The POU domain, a 150-amino acid region that determines binding specificity, is conserved among these proteins and consists of 3 subdomains: POU-specific A and B subdomains and a homeobox-like subdomain. Oct3/4 is expressed in undifferentiated cells, but is lost as cells are induced to differentiate. Oct3/4 is not expressed in adult tissues. The interaction of Oct3/4 with SOX2, another embryonic transcription factor, produces an active complex that regulates expression of genes such as Nanog, UTF1, and FGF4. Although Oct3/4 is specifically phosphorylated on serine residues, this modification is not required for DNA binding, but may affect its transactivation potential. Thus, Oct3/4 is a transcription factor that plays an important role in determining early steps of embryogenesis and differentiation.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV510 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 405-nm and Em Max at 510-nm, BD Horizon BV510 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon V500 (525/50-nm) filter set. BD Horizon BV510 conjugates are useful for the detection of dim markers off the violet laser.
