  • IF - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Fluorescent confocal image of SY5Y cells stained with SOX2 antibody. SY5Y cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.2%, 30 min). Cells were then incubated with AM2048a SOX2 primary antibody (1:100, 2 h at room temperature). For secondary antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey anti-mouse antibody (green) was used (1:1000, 1h). Note the highly specific localization of the SOX2 mainly to the nucleus.

  • WB - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Western blot analysis of lysate from NCCIT cell line, using SOX2 Antibody(Cat. #AM2048a). AM2048a was diluted at 1:1000. A goat anti-mouse IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:3000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysate at 20μg.
  • WB - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Western blot analysis of lysate from SOX2 protein, using SOX2 Antibody(Cat. #AM2048a). AM2048a was diluted at 1:4000. A goat anti-mouse IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:3000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysate at 20μg.
  • IHC-P - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human lung carcinoma tissue reacted with SOX2 Antibody (Cat.#AM2048a), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • FC - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Flow cytometric analysis of NCI-H460 cells using SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). PE-conjugated goat-anti-mouse secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
  • IHC - SOX2 Antibody  AM2048a
    Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human Lung squamous cell carcinoma section using Pink1(Cat#am2048a). am2048a was diluted at 1:100 dilution. A undiluted biotinylated goat polyvalent antibody was used as the secondary, followed by DAB staining.

Protein Information
Name SOX2
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). Binds to the proximal enhancer region of NANOG (By similarity). Critical for early embryogenesis and for embryonic stem cell pluripotency (PubMed:18035408). Downstream SRRT target that mediates the promotion of neural stem cell self-renewal (By similarity). Keeps neural cells undifferentiated by counteracting the activity of proneural proteins and suppresses neuronal differentiation (By similarity). May function as a switch in neuronal development (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus speckle {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q05066}. Cytoplasm {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q05738}. Nucleus {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q05738}. Note=Acetylation contributes to its nuclear localization and deacetylation by HDAC3 induces a cytoplasmic delocalization (By similarity). Colocalizes in the nucleus with ZNF208 isoform KRAB-O and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) (By similarity) Colocalizes with SOX6 in speckles. Colocalizes with CAML in the nucleus (By similarity). Nuclear import is facilitated by XPO4, a protein that usually acts as a nuclear export signal receptor (By similarity) {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q05066, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q05738}

This intronless gene encodes 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. The product of this gene is required for stem-cell maintenance in the central nervous system, and also regulates gene expression in the stomach. Mutations in this gene have been associated with optic nerve hypoplasia and with syndromic microphthalmia, a severe form of structural eye malformation. This gene lies within an intron of another gene called SOX2 overlapping transcript (SOX2OT).
