Belongs to the Nanog homeobox family.
Expressed in testicular carcinoma and derived germ cell tumors (at protein level). Expressed in fetal gonads, ovary and testis. Also expressed in ovary teratocarcinoma cell line and testicular embryonic carcinoma. Not expressed in many somatic organs and oocytes.
Expressed in embryonic stem (ES) and carcinoma (EC) cells. Expressed in inner cell mass (ICM) of the blastocyst and gonocytes between 14 and 19 weeks of gestation (at protein level). Not expressed in oocytes, unfertilized oocytes, 2-16 cell embryos and early morula (at protein level). Expressed in embryonic stem cells (ES). Expression decreases with ES differentiation.
NANOG is a transcription factor critically involved with self-renewal of undifferentiated embryonic stem cells. NANOG is thought to function in concert with other factors such as POU5F1 and SOX2 to establish ESC identity. Overexpression of NANOG in mouse embryonic stem cells causes them to self-renew in the absence of Leukemia inhibitory factor. NANOG overexpression in human embryonic stem cells enables their propagation for multiple passages during which the cells remain pluripotent.
