General description

Transcription factor SOX-2 (SOX-2) 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. Mutations in this gene have been associated with bilateral anophthalmia, a severe form of structural eye malformation. When SOX-2 is expressed in self renewing progenitor cells, it acts to inhibit neuronal differentiation. Conversely, active repression of SOX-2 induces neural differentiation.


Rabbit polyclonal anti-SOX2 antibody recognizes human, mouse, rat sex-determining region Y-box 2 transcription factors.


synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 32-47 of human SOX2.


Rabbit polyclonal anti-SOX2 antibody is used to tag solute sex-determining region Y-box 2 transcription factor for detection and quantitation by immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques, such as immunoblotting (~37 kDa) and flow cytometry. It is used as a probe to determine the presence and roles of sex-determining region Y-box 2 transcription factor in progenitor cell self renewal and differentiation.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.

Studies of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) commonly describe the nonfunctional p53-p21 axis of the G1/S checkpoint pathway with subsequent relevance for cell cycle regulation and the DNA damage response (DDR). Importantly, p21 mRNA is clearly present and upregulated after...

Cell lineage reprogramming via transgene overexpression of key master regulatory transcription factors has been well documented. However, the poor efficiency and lack of fidelity of this approach is problematic. Synthetic transcription factors (sTFs)-built from the repurposed CRISPR/Cas9 system-can activate endogenous...
