c-myc antibody

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 factor for genes involved in cell growth, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. c-Myc contains a basic helix-loop-helix domain and a leucine zipper domain that allow for its heterodimerization with its binding partner Max. Myc/Max complexes are able to activate genes via the Myc transactivation domain (1).

c-Myc. See Myc Run Transcription Regulation

Myc genes (L-Myc, N-Myc and C-Myc) are a family of transcription factors. c-Myc is involved in transcription regulation, apoptosis and cell growth. Mutations in c-Myc have been tied to several cancers.

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.

Cerebellar Degeneration-Related Protein 2 (CDR2): Cell-Cycle Regulated Tumor Antigen

CDR2 is a tumor antigen expressed in a high percentage of breast and ovarian tumors and is the target of a naturally occurring tumor immune response in patients with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration.

Myc-tag: The "Monkey Wrench" of Proteomic Tools

c-Myc is a well-characterized transcription factor encoded by the c-Myc gene on human chromosome 8q24. This cellular proto-oncogene, also known as p62, is commonly activated in a variety of tumor cells and plays a crucial role in cellular proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, and cell cycle progression.

Nucleolin Antibodies: Knowing When it's Time to Split

Nucleolin is an abundant, 106 kDa nucleolar phosphoprotein that is a major protein in actively dividing cells. The stability of nucleolin is heavily cell proliferation-dependent, as nucleolin antibody studies have shown that degraded forms are relatively abundant in quiescent non-dividing cells, while nonexist in actively dividing cells.

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 by immnoflorescence, immunoprecipitation and by Western blotting assays.

The c-Myc Antibody: A Major Tool in Cancer Research

C-Myc is a widely expressed transcription factor, regulating cellular differentiation, proliferation, cell cycle progression and pro-apoptotic gene expression. The c-Myc antibody is widely used in cancer research, as a number of human tumors have been attributed to altered c-Myc expression.

Epitope Tags and the V5 Tag Antibody

We at Novus Biologicals have a large antibody catalog targeted to epitope tags. They include C-Myc, GFP, HA, DYKDDDDK, and V5 Tag antibody reagents. The V5 tag antibody recognizes the artificially engineered V5 epitope, which is formed of amino acid residues 95-108 of the simian virus 5 RNA polymerase alpha subunit.
