SOX2 is a transcription factor involved in the regulation of embryonic and cell development, is required for the maintenance of stem cells in the central nervous system and also regulates gene expression in the stomach. SOX2 is expressed in the fetal brain and is a marker for multipotent neural stem cells. In tumors, SOX2 expression is observed in central nervous system teratomas, melanoma, testicular germ cell tumors, cervical cancer, lung cancer, basal cell phenotype breast cancer, and squamous cell carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract.
