SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 2, also known as SOX2, is a transcription factor that is essential to maintain self-renewal of undifferentiated embryonic stem cells. SOX2 gene encodes a 317-amino acid protein, and lies in an intron of the SOX2OT (SOX2 overlapping transcript) gene with single-exon. SOX2 is expressed early in the embryonic stem cells of the blastocyst and later in the neural stem cells. It is a member of the SOX family of proteins that carry a DNA-binding high-mobility group (HMG) domain and additional domains that regulate embryonic development and cell fate determinations. Mutations in SOX2 can cause not only anophthalmia, but also aplasia of the optic nerve, chiasm and optic tract, as well as modest bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, and global developmental delay, underscoring the importance of SOX2 in early human eye and brain development. And the ectopic expression of SOX2 may be related to abnormal differentiation of colorectal cancer cells.
