      DescriptionAnti-Sox2, Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • Transcription factor SOX-2
      Background InformationSOX2 is also known as SRY related HMG BOX gene 2. All SOX proteins have a single HMG box and bind linear DNA in a sequence-specific manner, resulting in the bending of DNA through large angles. Bending causes the DNA helix to open for some distance, which may affect binding and interactions of other transcription factors. SOX1, SOX2 and SOX3 show the closest homology to SRY. They share maximum homology within the HMG domain and are expressed mainly in the developing nervous system of the mouse. These genes share significant homology outside the HMG box also and are highly conserved throughout their evolution.

      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).

      • Sox2
      Purification MethodAffinity Purfied
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: 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: 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: Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.
      Molecular WeightThe unconjugated antibody (AB5603) tested on western blot detects Sox2 in whole cell or nuclear extracts as a protein band at 34 kDa.
