Regulatory Status Legend
Development of a multicellular organism from a single fertilized egg is regulated by the coordinated activity of DNA transcription factors. Oct3/4, a member of the POU family of transcription factors, functions in pluripotent cells of early embryonic stem (ES) cell lines and embryonal carcinomas (EC). The human POU5F1 gene can encode various splice variants, two of which are Oct3/4A and Oct3/4B. Both isoforms share identical POU DNA-binding and C-terminal domains but differ in their N-terminal domain. The N-terminal domain of Oct3/4B is inhibitory to the DNA binding domain and therefore cannot stimulate transcription of Oct3/4-dependent genes. Oct3/4B can be detected in both pluripotent and some differentiated cell types in both the nucleus and cytoplasm, but its function is unclear. There is not an equivalent to Oct3/4B in mouse. Oct3/4A is expressed in the nucleus and has been demonstrated to orchestrate the transcription of Oct3/4-dependent genes. It has been demonstrated that the expression of Oct3/4 isoforms can vary greatly in different cell types, and discrimination of these is crucial for assessing Oct3/4 expression and function. The O50-808 monoclonal antibody recognizes human Oct3/4 Isoform A and mouse Oct3/4.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
