POU domain, class 4, transcription factor 1

Brn-3A, Brn-3
This gene encodes a member of the POU-IV class of neural transcription factors. This protein is expressed in a subset of retinal ganglion cells and may be involved in the developing sensory nervous system. This protein may also promote the growth of cervical tumors. A translocation of this gene is associated with some adult acute myeloid leukemias. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012] (from NCBI)

Retinal and Optic Nerve Damage is Associated with Early Glial Responses in an Experimental Autoimmune Glaucoma Model.
Joachim et al., Bochum, Germany. In J Mol Neurosci, Feb 2016
At 14 and 28 days, immune-histological and Western blot analyses were performed to investigate the optic nerve structure (SMI-32), retinal ganglion cells (Brn-3a), apoptosis (cleaved caspase 3, FasL), and glial profile (Iba1, ED1, GFAP, vimentin).

In contrast to these, most other markers used (calretinin, recoverin, tyrosin hydroxylase anti-Brn-3a and also calbindin in the optic part of the retina) did not show any major alterations in the intensity of immunoreactivity or in the number of stained elements.
S100 alone has the same destructive effect on retinal ganglion cells as in combination with HSP 27 in an autoimmune glaucoma model.
Joachim et al., Bochum, Germany. In J Mol Neurosci, May 2015
A significant loss of retinal ganglion cells was also observed in both immunized groups on Brn-3a stained retinal cross-sections (S100, p = 0.003; COMB, p = 0.001).
The Effects of Sonic Hedgehog on Retinal Müller Cells Under High-Glucose Stress.
Lu et al., Guangzhou, China. In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, Apr 2015
The effects of exogenous SHH and its inhibitor cyclopamine on retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) survival after 3-month diabetes were examined by the counting of Brn-3a-labeled RGCs.
Actomyosin contractility plays a role in MAP2 expression during nanotopography-directed neuronal differentiation of human embryonic stem cells.
Yim et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Biomaterials, Apr 2015
On the other hand, our qPCR array results showed that PAX5, BRN3A and NEUROD1 were highly expressed in hESCs grown on nano-grating substrates as compared to unpatterned substrates, suggesting the possible involvement of these genes in topography-mediated neuronal differentiation of hESCs.
Neuroprotective effects of crocin against oxidative stress induced by ischemia/reperfusion injury in rat retina.
Yang et al., Xi'an, China. In Ophthalmic Res, 2014
The number of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) was counted by Brn-3a immunofluorescence staining.
Co-expression of POU4F2/Brn-3b with p53 may be important for controlling expression of pro-apoptotic genes in cardiomyocytes following ischaemic/hypoxic insults.
Heads et al., London, United Kingdom. In Cell Death Dis, 2013
In contrast, the related POU4F1/Brn-3a (Brn-3a) blocks p53-mediated apoptosis but co-operates with p53 to enhance cell cycle arrest.
AML1/ETO and POU4F1 synergy drives B-lymphoid gene expression typical of t(8;21) acute myeloid leukemia.

Xiang et al., United States. In Dev Biol, 2012
The results demonstrated a critical role for Brn3a in generating dorsal root ganglia sensory neuron diversity and regulating sensory afferent projections to the central targets.

Aizawa et al., Wako, Japan. In Dev Growth Differ, 2008
In this review, we explain how transgenic zebrafish can cast insights into the developmental mechanisms and functional roles of the neural circuits that directly and indirectly control visuomotor behavior, by taking as an example a transgenic line Tg(brn3a-hsp70:GFP) enabling visualization of the tectobulbar and habenulo-interpeduncular tracts.

Magnelli et al., Italy. In Mol Biotechnol, 2002
Brn-3a, a member of the POU gene family (so-called because of the similarity with the group of transcription factors Pit, Oct, and Unc), was found in neuronal cells engaged in the transcription activity of the p1 and p2 promoters of the most powerful antiapoptotic gene, namely, Bcl-2.
