Oct4 is expressed in Nestin-positive cells as a marker for pancreatic endocrine progenitor

Abstract

There are abundant progenitor cells in the developing pancreas, but molecular markers for these cells are lacking. Octamer-binding transcription factor-4 (Oct4) is an important transcription factor for keeping the features of self-renewal and pluripotency of embryonic stem cells. It’s well known that Oct4, as a totipotent stem cells marker, just is… (More)
