FunctionTranscription regulator involved in inner cell mass and embryonic stem (ES) cells proliferation and self-renewal. Imposes pluripotency on ES cells and prevents their differentiation towards extraembryonic endoderm and trophectoderm lineages. Blocks bone morphogenetic protein-induced mesoderm differentiation of ES cells by physically interacting with SMAD1 and interfering with the recruitment of coactivators to the active SMAD transcriptional complexes (By similarity). Acts as a transcriptional activator or repressor (By similarity). Binds optimally to the DNA consensus sequence 5'-TAAT[GT][GT]-3' or 5'-[CG][GA][CG]C[GC]ATTAN[GC]-3' (By similarity). When overexpressed, promotes cells to enter into S phase and proliferation.
Tissue specificityExpressed in testicular carcinoma and derived germ cell tumors (at protein level). Expressed in fetal gonads, ovary and testis. Also expressed in ovary teratocarcinoma cell line and testicular embryonic carcinoma. Not expressed in many somatic organs and oocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Nanog homeobox family.
Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
Developmental stageExpressed in embryonic stem (ES) and carcinoma (EC) cells. Expressed in inner cell mass (ICM) of the blastocyst and gonocytes between 14 and 19 weeks of gestation (at protein level). Not expressed in oocytes, unfertilized oocytes, 2-16 cell embryos and early morula (at protein level). Expressed in embryonic stem cells (ES). Expression decreases with ES differentiation.

Spatio-temporal changes in expression of pluripotency markers and self-organization of stem cell-derived aggregates in 3D culture.
Panels A-D: Expression of the pluripotency marker Nanog decreases as vesicles mature between differentiation days 5–8.
Panels A’-D’: Progression of outer epithelium ruffling indicating self-organization.
Three mouse embryonic stem cell aggregates were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde, then cryoprotected with a serial treatment of 15% and 30% sucrose and embedded in tissue freezing medium. Frozen tissue blocks were sectioned into 10 or 12 μm cyrosections. For immunostaining, a 3% goat or horse serum and 0.1% Triton-X100 solution was used for primary antibody incubation. An Alexa Fluor® 488, 568, or 647 conjugated anti-mouse IgG or anti-goat IgG and an Alexa Fluor 568 or 647 conjugated anti-rabbit IgG were used as secondary antibodies. A DAPI counterstain was used to visualize cellular nuclei.
Microscopy was performed on a Nikon TE2000 Inverted Microscope or an Olympus FV1000-MPE Confocal/Multiphoton Microscope.
ab80892 staining Nanog in mouse embryonic stem cells by immunocytochemistry/ immunofluorescence.
Cells were paraformaldehyde fixed and permeabilized in Tween-20 prior to blocking in 20% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the sample for 4 hour at 25°C. A Cy®5 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG antibody, diluted 1/100, was used as the secondary.

ab80892 staining mouse teratoma sections by IHC-P. The tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrival step was performed with citric acid pH 6. Blocking of the sample was done with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, followed by staining with ab80892 at 1/400 in TBS/BSA/azide for 2h at 21°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody at 1/200 was used as the secondary antibody.
