Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat SOX2 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat SOX2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of D3 mouse embryonic stem cell line, NTera-2 human testicular embryonic carcinoma cell line, F9 mouse teratocarcinoma stem cells, and rat cortical stem cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018R) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (HAF018). A specific band was detected for SOX2 at approximately 36 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Intracellular Staining by Flow Cytometry Detection of SOX2 antibody in NTera-2 Human Cell Line antibody by Flow Cytometry. View Larger

Detection of SOX2 in NTera‑2 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. NTera-2 human testicular embryonic carcinoma cell line was stained with Recombinant Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018R, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (MAB003, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (F0102B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (FC005).

Immunohistochemistry View Larger

Detection of SOX2 in glioblastoma. SOX2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of glioblastoma using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018R) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using VisUCyte Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # VCTS021). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei in cancer cells.

Background: SOX2

SOX2 belongs to the SOX (SRY-like HMG box) family of transcription factors with diverse roles in development. SOX2 functions in specifying the first three lineages present at implantation and in regulating proliferation and differentiation in the developing peripheral nervous system (1-6).
