BALB/C mice injected with synthetic peptide of human OCT-4 origin.
Embryonic Stem Cell Marker
OCT-4 immunostaining has been shown to be a sensitive and specific marker for seminomatous / (dys)germinomatous tumours and in embryonal carcinoma variants of non-seminomatous GCTs, whether in primary gonadal or extragonadal sites or in metastatic lesions.

POU-type homeodomain-containing DNA-binding protein
Members of Oct family of transcription factors specifically interact with Octamer motif ATGCAAAT, a regulatory element important for tissue- and cell-specific transcription as well as for transcription of a number of housekeeping genes. All of the members of the Oct family contain two highly conserved domains which are separated by 14-26 variable amino acids. These include the POU homeodomain and the POU-specific domain. Both are required for DNA binding and are involved in protein-protein interactions. Evidences indicate that regulation of Oct family transcription factors occurs at the level of phosphorylation. Oct4 is renowned as a transcription factor expressed by undifferentiated embryonic stem cells and embryonic germ cells.
