Octamer Binding Transcription Factor 4 (OCT4, also known as OCT3/4, POU51) is a transcription factor and is expressed by early embryonic cells, germ cells, and stem cells. OCT4 is a nuclear marker of classical seminoma and embryonal carcinoma. It has excellent sensitivity and specificity for these two tumors, and can be used as the “screen” for these neoplasms when dealing with a metastatic tumor of unknown origin.
