Immunofluorescent analysis of SOX2 using anti-SOX2 polyclonal antibody (Product# PA1-094) shows specific expression in human embryonal carcinoma NTERA-2 cells (shown in green) but not in negative control HeLa cells. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature. Cells were blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product #37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a rabbit polyclonal antibody recognizing SOX2 (Product# PA1-094), at a dilution of 1:200 for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were washed with PBS and incubated with DyLight 488 goat-anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody (Product# 35552) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. F-Actin (red) was stained with DY-547 phalloidin, nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product# 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

PA1-094X detects SOX2 in human and mouse samples and has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, IHC (P) and immunoprecipitation applications.
The PA1-094 immunogen is a full-length recombinant protein expressed in bacteria.
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).
