Oct8 (human)

Overview
Oct8 Transcription factor that acts synergistically with SOX11 and SOX4. Plays a role in neuronal development. Is implicated in an enhancer activity at the embryonic met- mesencephalic junction; the enhancer element contains the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 3 subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Transcription factor; DNA binding protein
Cellular Component: nucleus
Molecular Function: sequence-specific DNA binding; transcription factor activity
Biological Process: central nervous system development; transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of cell proliferation; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; cerebral cortex radially oriented cell migration; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; negative regulation of apoptosis; forebrain ventricular zone progenitor cell division
