|Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets||c Myc epitope tag|
Recombinant monoclonal antibody raised against sequence of c-Myc, a proto-oncogene heavily implicated in a variety of (hematopoietic) cancers.
Background and Research Application
Anti c-Myc is raised against the proto-oncogene c-Myc, analogous to the avian v-Myc gene a very strong proto-oncogene often found to be upregulated in cancer. Aberrant and constitutive expression of c-Myc has been particularly implicated in the upregulation of genes involved in cellular proliferation and has been identified in cancers include carcinoma of cervix, colon, breast, lung and stomach, plus a translocation leading to Burkitt’s lymphoma. The gene product of c-Myc (p62) is upregulated in various hematopoietic tumours.
Recombinant 9E10 recognises recombinant proteins incorporating a c-Myc epitope tag and detects human c-Myc protein as well as a peptide in random coil configuration not as a helix. This antibody is a recombinant version of the anti c-Myc 9E10 monoclonal antibody.
c-Myc is believed to regulate expression of 15% of all genes, hence its strong implicated in cancer and represents a promising therapeutic target. c-Myc has been shown to be involved in apoptosis, cell cycle progression, proliferation and differentiation. c-Myc carries out its healthy and oncogenic functions within the nucleus. The c-Myc protein is a 62 kDa transcription factor encoded by c-Myc gene on human chromosome 8q24.
Anti c-Myc was created to precipitate p62 from human cells and recognise the c-Myc gene product, particularly in immunoblots to enable quantification of c-Myc in cells.

Anti c-Myc can be used to facilitate research into function pathology of c-Myc expression in normal and neoplastic cells. Anti c-Myc antibody has be used in protein localisation, immunohistochemistry, ELISA and protein purification, though identification of c-Myc tagged proteins.
The epitope recognised by anti c-Myc, comprising the amino acid sequence `Glu‐Gln‐Lys‐Leu‐Ile‐Ser‐Glu‐Glu‐Asp‐Leu‐Asn', can be expressed in a different protein context and still confers recognition by the anti c-Myc 9E10 antibody.
