This Sox2 antibody was raised against a peptide within the C-terminal region of human Sox2.
Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
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.
Active Motif's P19 Nuclear Extract (Catalog No. 35074) can be used as a positive control for Sox2 antibody.
