General description

Monoclonal Anti-SOX2 (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma SOX2-6 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice.
SOX2 (sex-determining region Y-box 2) is a transcription factor that is made of 317 amino acid. It has a HMG (high mobility group box) domain and is a critical transcription regulator of normal stem cell. It is located on human chromosome 3q26.3.


Anti-Sox2 antibody has been used in western blotting and immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mutations in the SOX2 gene have been associated with bilateral anophthalmia, a severe form of structural eye malformation.
SOX2 (sex-determining region Y-box 2) down-regulation reduces the stem cell count, that affects the breast cancer cells in initiating tumor progression. It participates in chemoresistance and regular lung cancer therapies. In mouse, SOX2 plays an important role in branching morphogenesis and regulating lung epithelial cell differentiation.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.
