Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3') and activates the promoters of the genes for some small nuclear RNAs (snRNA) and histone H2B. Acts downstream of Notch signaling during radial glia formation. Regulates apoptosis, possibly via an FGF-signaling pathway.6 Publications

Caution

PubMed:2017364 and PubMed:1990276 show that although pou2f1 binds well to a perfect octamer motif, it does not bind to the variant octamer motif most often found in Xenopus laevis histone H2B gene promoters. PubMed:1406629 therefore suggest that interactions between pou2f1 and other factors bound to the H2B octamer are required for octamer-dependent H2B transcription.Curated

Expressed in ectodermal and mesodermal cell lineages where expression becomes spatially restricted to the developing nervous system as development progresses (at protein level).

At late tailbud stages (stage 30), expressed broadly in the CNS.3 Publications
