Sox2 (SRY related HMG BOX gene 2) is a DNA binding transcription factor and a member of the SOX family of proteins. SOX proteins have an HMG box that binds DNA. Sox2 forms a complex with Oct-4 and controls the expression of a number of genes involved in embryonic. Sox2 is critical for early embryogenesis and for embryonic stem cell pluripotency and thus can serve as a stem cell marker. Overexpression of Sox2 (along with Oct-4, KLF4 and c-Myc) can transform mouse fibroblasts into a state resembling embryonic stem cells (ES cells), referred to as Induced Pluripotency. Defects in Sox2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 3.

Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.


This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
