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.
