This c-Myc antibody is useful for ELISA, Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation, and Immunohistochemistry-paraffin embedded sections. Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.
The c-Myc protein is a transcription factor, which is encoded by the c-Myc gene on human chromosome 8q24. c-Myc is commonly activated in a variety of tumor cells and plays an important role in cellular proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and cell cycle progression. The phosphorylation of c-Myc has been investigated and previous studies have suggested a functional association between phosphorylation at Thr58/Ser62 by glycogen synthase kinase 3, cyclin dependent kinase, ERK2 and C-Jun N terminal Kinase (JNK) in cell proliferation and cell cycle regulation. Studies also have shown that c-Myc is essential for tumor cell development in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis that distribute blood throughout the cells, and which brought extensive attention in the development of new therapeutic approach for cancer treatment.

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.
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 r... Read full blog post.
