Nanog is a homeobox-containing transcription factor with an essential function in maintaining the pluripotent cells of the inner cell mass and in the derivation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) from these14. Furthermore, overexpression of Nanog is capable of maintaining the pluripotency and self-renewing characteristics of ESCs under what normally would be differentiation inducing culture conditions. There are currently approximately 25 transcriptional factors (TFs) that have been reported to be expressed in stem cells. Of them, OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, Nanog, and SALL4 comprise a core regulatory network for embryonic stem cell maintenance and self-renewal15. These TFs are highly expressed in embryonic stem cells; in contrast, they are mainly silenced in normal somatic cells, except in small groups of adult stem cell populations.

We have established a novel quantitative analysis of NANOG mRNA expression. This method is based on real-time PCR. The expression levels of the mRNAs were determined from the threshold cycle (Ct), and the relative expression levels were calculated using the 2-ΔΔCt method. For mRNA quantification, the Ct values were normalized to the expression of the GAPDH mRNA level. Results are expressed in corresponding arbitrary units (AU) User friendly and complete, the NANOG-RT-PCR real time Quantification kit is suitable for any laboratory.
