Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 1, Basic Domain, Helix-Loop-Helix Protein, Class B, 6 or Class E Basic Helix-Loop-Helix Protein 21 is encoded by the gene Olig1. Olig1 is a transcription factor and a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) factor family. Olig1 promotes formation and maturation of oligodendrocytes (oligodendrogensis). Olig1 is expressed in spinal cord and brain during development, and by oligodendrocytes after late embryonic development. Olig1 is a useful marker for Oligodendrocyte staining. Diseases associated with this gene include Oligodendroglioma and Grade Iii Astrocytoma.
Fusion protein amino acids 1-67 (N-terminus) of mouse Olig1(also known as Oligodendrocyte-specific bHLH transcription factor 1 and Oligo1, accession number Q9JKN5); Rat: 97% identity (66/68 amino acids identical); Human: 75% identity (54/72 amino acids identical); Less than 40% identity with Olig2
Store at ≤ -20 C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8 C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
