Western blot analysis of POU4F3 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with POU4F3 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00005459-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with POU4F3 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 5B8 (Cat # H00005459-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a member of the POU-domain family of transcription factors. POU-domain proteins have been observed to play important roles in control of cell identity in several systems. This protein is found in the retina and may play a role in determining or maintaining the identities of a small subset of visual system neurons. Defects in this gene are the cause of non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal dominant type 15. [provided by RefSeq
