c-Myc (v-myc avian myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog) is a transcription factor, which is coded by MYC gene. It was first described as a homolog of an avian retroviral oncogene. It belongs to the family of transcription factors which are characterized by basic region helix-loop-helix/leucine zipper. Along with N-Myc and L-Myc, it forms the MYC proto-oncogene family. It forms a heterodimer with MAX, and this heterodimer binds to the E-boxes/CACGTG sequence motif on DNA. This gene is localized to human chromosome 8q24.
The mouse Anti-c-MYC monoclonal antibody recognizes an epitope located within a sequence (EQKLISEEDL) of the product of the human oncogene c-myc.
synthetic peptide of the human p62c-Myc protein.
Monoclonal Anti-c-Myc antibody produced in mouse is suitable for immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting, ELISA, immunofluorescence, microarray and electron microscopy. It has also been used in ChIP (Chromatin Immunoprecipitation).
Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas
v-myc avian myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog belongs to MYC family. When overexpressed these proteins can cause DNA double-stand breaks (DSBs) and genome instability. This transcription factor MYC helps in regulating long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) which has been implicated in cancer cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. Its overexpression is also associated with various cancers, and in particular B cell lymphomas. Increased expression of c-MYC has a negative effect on the ability of B cell lymphomas to functionally present Ags/peptides to CD4+ T cells. This protein exerts suppressive effects at several critical checkpoints in Ag presentation. It is associated with Burkitt lymphoma and a group of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
