  • 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.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects 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.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.
  • Post-translational

    Sumoylation inhibits binding on DNA and negatively regulates the FGF4 transactivation.
  • Cellular localization

  • Information by UniProt

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry.

I would like to reassure you that our product have all been tested successfully and would be covered by our Abpromise guarantee.

Also, although we produce many in-house products, we obtain other products from a wide range of sources. In this case, these products are from different labs. Each product will be recombinant full length human SOX2. The only difference I noted beside those which you have mentioned is that ab79550 has > 95% purity by SDS-PAGE whereas ab95847 has > 90% purity by SDS-PAGE.

I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.
