Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-OCT-2 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-OCT-2 antibody
Oct1 and Oct2 are transcription factors of the POU homeo-domain family that bind to the Ig gene octamer sites, regulating Bcell-specific genes. The function of these transcription factors is dependent on the activity of B-cell-restricted coactivators such as BOB.1/OBF.1.Absence of functional Oct-2 and Bob-1 cells represents a novel mechanism for immunoglobulin gene deregulation

NCBI Summary for OCT-2
The protein encoded by this gene is a homeobox-containing transcription factor of the POU domain family. The encoded protein binds the octamer sequence 5'-ATTTGCAT-3', a common transcription factor binding site in immunoglobulin gene promoters. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
UniProt Comments for OCT-2
Function: Transcription factor that specifically binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Regulates transcription in a number of tissues in addition to activating immunoglobulin gene expression. Modulates transcription transactivation by NR3C1, AR and PGR. Isoform 5 activates the U2 small nuclear RNA (snRNA) promoter. Ref.2 Ref.6 Ref.8 Ref.9

Subunit structure: Interacts with NR3C1, AR and PGR. Ref.11

Subcellular location: Cytoplasm

By similarity. Nucleus.

Tissue specificity: Isoform 3 is B-cell specific. Isoform 5 is expressed in B-cells and the immunoglobulin-expressing T-cell line Molt-4, but not in the T-cell line BW 5147. Ref.2 Ref.10

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class-2 subfamily.Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.Contains 1 POU-specific domain.

Sequence caution: The sequence CAA32039.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation.
