FunctionTranscription 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.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SOX2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 3 (MCOPS3) [MIM:206900]. Microphthalmia is a clinically heterogeneous disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. MCOPS3 is characterized by the rare association of malformations including uni- or bilateral anophthalmia or microphthalmia, and esophageal atresia with trachoesophageal fistula.

ab75627 staining SOX2 from human neural stem cells derived from hESCscells by immunocytochemistry. Cells were paraformaldehyde fixed and permeabilized in 0.1% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 10% serum for 1 hour at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 18 hours at 4°C. An Alexa fluor® 488 goat polyclonal to rabbit Ig, diluted 1/500, was used as the secondary antibody. Left image shows nuclei staining with Dapi (blue) and right shows ab75627 staining (green).
