Myc genes are a family of proto-oncogenes (L- Myc, N- Myc and C- Myc) that codes for Myc proteins which are transcriptor factors implicated in cellular proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, metabolism, adhesion and self-renovation of tumor stem cells. Myc protein can act as transcriptional activator/repressor, and is activated via response to diverse mitogenic signals (including Wnt, Shh and EGF) and has been found to be up-regulated in several types of cancers. c-Myc participates gene transcription regulation and binds DNA in a non-specific manner, yet can specifically recognizes core sequence 5'-CAC[GA]TG-3' also. c-Myc heterodimerization with another bHLH protein namely Myc-associated factor X (MAX) is required for efficient c-Myc- DNA binding. c-Myc interacts with several proteins such as TAF1C, SPAG9, PARP10, KDM5A, KDM5B, NO66, PIM2 and with FBXW7 when phosphorylated at Thr-58/Ser-62. c-Myc activate the transcription of growth-related genes and c- Myc overexpression induce cell-cycle progression thereby implicating in a variety of cancers. Moreover, a chromosomal aberration involving c-Myc has been linked to a form of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia and defective c-MYC is responsible for Burkitt lymphoma also.

FAQs for c-Myc (3)
Can I use ant myc antibody for my ChIP since my protein does not have antibody yet? Am going to get a myc-tag cloned protein as transfection-ready for this assay in Caco-2 cell line. How do I start and any tips since and going to use your kit?
Yes, you can use c-myc antibody for your mentioned endeavors. c-Myc Antibody (9E11) (NB200-108) is one of our best sellers that has been validated for ChIP application. It has nice customer reviews and has been cited in several peer reviewed publications as well. Regarding your question on tips, can you please confirm me the catalog number of the kit you have or are planning to buy? Moreover, please let me know if you have any specific questions.
In the immunohistochemistry paraffin section protocol....the PBS buffer....should it be at certain pH?
For IHC application, different labs cites the pH of PBS buffer in the range of 7.1 - 7.6 but most commonly used pH is pH 7.4 (this is what we use in our lab). You may use this PBS (pH 7.4) for making permeablization buffer, antibody diluent buffers and for making wash buffer. For more on the protocol that we use in our lab and for IHC-P troubleshooting suggestions, you may visit: IHC-P Protocol and IHC-P Troubleshooting.
I was wondering what does Format 7C mean as far as anitbodies go?
7C is a fluorophore - it is useful for FLOW. The details of the fluor are (A=425, E=500)
c-Myc - transcription factor and oncogene c-Myc is a protein of the Myc family of transcription factors (c-Myc, B-Myc, L-Myc, N-Myc, and s-Myc) encoded by the MYC proto-oncogene. c-Myc was first discovered as the cellular homolog of the retroviral v-Myc oncogene. c-Myc is a transcription...

Beta Catenin Implications for Signaling The Wnt/beta Catenin signaling pathway plays a critical role in embryonic development, stem cell self-renewal and regeneration. Alterations in this signaling cascade have been implicated in the pathogenesis of cancer. Notably, chronic activation of Wn... Read full blog post.
The Myc Epitope Tags Along... Recombinant DNA technology allows researchers to fuse epitope tags to their protein of interest and then identify that protein using tag specific antibodies. The Myc Tag can be used to purify tagged proteins by affinity chromatography or detect them b... Read full blog post.
