The SOX-2 protein is a transcription factor that is critical for early embryogenesis and for embryonic stem cell pluripotency. The SOX-2 protein is also significant for eye development. SOX 2, also known as SRY related HMG BOX gene 2, belongs to the SOX (SRY-box containing gene) gene family. The SOX-2 protein is a transcription factor since it binds to DNA and regulates activity of other genes. All SOX family proteins share HMG box domains for DNA binding.
