|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||34310 Da|
|Other Names||Transcription factor SOX-2, SOX2|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human SOX2 was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Precautions||SOX2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcription factor that forms a trimeric complex with OCT4 on DNA and controls the expression of a number of genes involved in embryonic development such as YES1, FGF4, UTF1 and ZFP206 (By similarity). Critical for early embryogenesis and for embryonic stem cell pluripotency. May function as a switch in neuronal development. Downstream SRRT target that mediates the promotion of neural stem cell self-renewal (By similarity). Keeps neural cells undifferentiated by counteracting the activity of proneural proteins and suppresses neuronal differentiation (By similarity).|

SOX2 is a member of the SRY-related HMG-box (SOX) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of cell fate. It is required for stem-cell maintenance in the central nervous system, and also regulates gene expression in the stomach (1). SOX2 is necessary for regulating multiple transcription factors that affect Oct3/4 expression. An essential function of SOX2 is to stabilize embryonic stem cells in a pluripotent state by maintaining the requisite level of Oct3/4 expression (2).
