POU domain, class 2, transcription factor 1
Octamer-binding protein 1
Short name= Oct-1
Short name= XOct1
Octamer-binding transcription factor 1
Short name= OTF-1
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3') and activates the promoters of the genes for some small nuclear RNAs (snRNA) and histone H2B. Acts downstream of Notch signaling during radial glia formation. Regulates apoptosis, possibly via an FGF-signaling pathway.
POU transcription factor family, Class-2 subfamily
Abundant in the animal hemisphere of the blastula embryo and during early embryogenesis. Expressed in ectodermal and mesodermal cell lineages where expression becomes spatially restricted to the developing nervous system as development progresses (at prot
