ABSTRACT
The transcription factors Pou5f1, Sox2, and Nanog are central regulators of pluripotency in mammalian ES and iPS cells. In vertebrate embryos, Pou5f1/3, SoxB1, and Nanog control zygotic genome activation and participate in lineage decisions. We review the current knowledge of the roles of these genes in developing vertebrate embryos from fish to mammals and suggest a model for pluripotency gene regulatory network functions in early development.
