General description

Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2 (UniProt Q9EQW6; also known as bHLHe19, Olig-2, Oligo2, RACK17, RK17) is encoded by the Olig2 (also known as Bhlhb1) gene (Gene ID 50913) in murine species. Olig2 is a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor expressed in a spinal cord ventricular zone domain where it mediates the sequential generation of motoneurons and oligodendrocytes during embryogenesis. Olig2 also functions as an anti-neurogenic factor in pMN progenitors at early time points to sustain the cycling progenitor pool. The anti-neurogenicity of Olig2 is also responsible for its role in tumorigenesis, especially in brain tumors and leukemia. Due to its expression in glioblastoma and other diffuse gliomas, Olig2 is a useful diagnostic marker of these brain tumors.

Specificity

The unconjugated antibody (Cat. No. AB9610) recognizes the ~32 kDa Olig-2 protein by Western blotting.
