Homeobox protein OTX1
Orthodenticle homolog 1
Store at -20°C, for extended storage, conserve at -20°C or -80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
This gene encodes a member of the bicoid sub-family of homeodomain-containing transcription factors. The encoded protein acts as a transcription factor and may play a role in brain and sensory organ development. A similar protein in mice is required for proper brain and sensory organ development and can cause epilepsy.
Probably plays a role in the development of the brain and the sense organs. Can bind to the BCD target sequence (BTS)
Paired homeobox family, Bicoid subfamily
Brain: restricted regions of the developing rostral brain including the presumptive cerebral cortex and olfactory bulbs; expressed in the developing olfactory, auricolar and ocular systems, including the covering of the optic nerve.
