Sox2 is a member of the Sox family of transcription factors. Sox2 is classified as a member of SoxB1 group, which also includes Sox1 and Sox3. Although Sox1, Sox2 and Sox3 share more than 80% sequence similarity and are functionally redundant, Sox2 can exert distinct functions in a biologically context-dependent manner and is indispensable for embryonic development. In human and mouse ESCs, Oct4, Sox2 and Nanog form a core transcriptional regulatory circuitry in pluripotent stem cells to maintain their self-renewal. Oct4 and Sox2 co-occupy a large number of enhancers/promoters and regulate the expression levels of their target genes21.

We have established a novel quantitative analysis of SOX2 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 SOX2-RT-PCR real time Quantification kit is suitable for any laboratory.
