Characterization of POU5F1 (OCT4) gene and its promoter in buffalo ESC-like cells identifies multiple transcription start sites and expression of four pseudogenes.

Abstract

In the present study, we cloned and characterized the buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) OCT4 ortholog expressed in embryonic stem cell (ESC) like cells and its promoter region. The 5'- and 3'-RACE experiments were conducted to analyze the transcription initiation site and regulatory regions. The comparative analysis of buffalo OCT4 promoter with other mammalian… (More)
