General description

OLIG2 (oligodendrocyte lineage transcription factor 2) is a transcription factor (TF) belonging to the basic-helix-loop-helix (bHLH) TF family. It is expressed in human glioblastoma and neural progenitor cells. It is a member of the Olig family, and has a predominant expression in ventral spinal cord of human embryo, during initial developmental stages. In spinal cord, it is essential for the maturation of oligodendrocyte progenitor cells.

Immunogen

Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Application

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. We also provide Prestige Antibodies® protocols and other useful information.
Anti-OLIG2 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunohistochemistry and western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

OLIG2 (oligodendrocyte lineage transcription factor 2) is expressed in the pMN domain of the spinal cord, where the formation of motoneurons and differentiation of oligodendrocytes occur. Along with Olig1, another protein of the same family, Olig2 participates in specification of neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. The gene is mapped to a region on chromosome 21 that has been implicated in learning deficits associated with Down syndrome. It is predominantly expressed in oligodendroglial tumors of the brain and serves as a biomarker for oligodendroglial tumor diagnosis.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
