Western blot analysis of OTX1 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with OTX1 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00005013-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with OTX1 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 1F2 (Cat # H00005013-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a member of the bicoid sub-family of homeodomain-containing transcription factors. The encoded protein acts as a transcription factor and may play a role in brain and sensory organ development. A similar protein in mice is required for proper brain and sensory organ development and can cause epilepsy. [provided by RefSeq
