      Alternate Names
      • Transcription factor SOX-2
      • SOX2
      Background InformationAll ChIPAb+ antibodies are individually validated for chromatin precipitation, every lot, every time. Each ChIPAb+ antibody set includes control primers (tested every lot by qPCR) to biologically validate your IP results in a locus-specific context. The qPCR protocol and primer sequences are provided, allowing researchers to validate ChIP protocols when using our antibody in their chromatin context. Each set also includes a negative control antibody to ensure specificity of the ChIP reaction.
      The ChIPAb+ Sox-2, clone 6F1.2 antibody/primer set includes the Sox-2, clone 6F1.2 antibody, a negative control antibody (purified mouse IgG), and qPCR primers which amplify a 95 bp region within the promoter of the human nanog gene. The Sox-2, clone 6F1.2 antibody and negative control antibodies are supplied in a scalable "per ChIP" reaction size and can be used to functionally validate the precipitation of Sox-2-associated chromatin.

      Sox-2 plays a key role in embryonic stem cell development, and has been shown to help stem cells maintain pluripotent potential. It has also been shown to be associated with uncommitted dividing stem cell and precursor cells of the developing CNS.

      Antibody TypeMonoclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis 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).
      Gene Symbol
      • SOX2
      • ANOP3
      • MGC2413
      • MCOPS3
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P48431 # Can form ternary complexes with OCT-1 or OCT-3 but acts as a transcriptional activator of FGF-4 enhancer DNA sequences only in conjunction with OCT-3 (By similarity).

      SIZE: 317 amino acids; 34310 Da


      DISEASE: SwissProt: P48431 # Defects in SOX2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 3 (MCOPS3) [MIM:206900]. MCOPS3 is characterized by the association of microphthalmia or clinical anophthalmia with anomalies such as microcephaly, short stature, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, esophageal atresia and neurologic manifestations.

      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P48431 ## Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.

      Quality AssuranceChromatin Immunoprecipitation:
      Sonicated chromatin prepared from Ntera 2 cells (3 X 106 cell equivalents per IP) were subjected to chromatin immunoprecipitation using 4 µg of either a normal mouse IgG, or Anti-Sox-2, clone 6F1.2 antibody and the Magna ChIP™ G Kit (Cat. No. 17-611). Successful immunoprecipitation of Sox-2-associated DNA fragments was verified by qPCR using ChIP Primers, nanog promoter (Figure 1).
      Please refer to the EZ-Magna ChIP™ G (Cat. No. 17-409) or EZ-ChIP™ (Cat. No. 17-371) protocol for experimental details.
