SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 8, also known as SOX8, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: SOX8 SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 8| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = This gene encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional activator after forming a protein complex with other proteins. This protein may be involved in brain development and function. Haploinsufficiency for this protein may contribute to the mental retardation found in haemoglobin H-related mental retardation (ART-16 syndrome).cite web | title = Entrez Gene: SOX8 SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 8| url =| accessdate = ]
