E-Cadherin and SOX2 antibody in BG01V Human Stem Cells by Immunocytochemistry (ICC).

E‑Cadherin and SOX2 in BG01V Human Stem Cells.

E-Cadherin and SOX2 were detected in BG01V human embryonic stem cells using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human E-Cadherin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (AF648) and 10 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018). Cells were incubated with primary antibodies for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained for E-Cadherin using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; NL001) and for SOX2 using the NorthernLights 493-conjugated Anti-Mouse Secondary Antibody (green; NL009). Cells were counterstained with DAPI (blue). View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat SOX2 antibody by Western Blot.

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

Western blot shows lysates of NTera-2 human testicular embryonic carcinoma cell line, F9 mouse teratocarcinoma stem cells, D3 mouse embryonic stem cell line, and rat cortical stem cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018) 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.
SOX2 antibody in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells by Immunocytochemistry (ICC).

SOX2 in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells.

SOX2 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Mouse Anti-Human/ Mouse/Rat SOX2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2018) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

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).
