The protein encoded by this gene is a multifunctional, nuclear phosphoprotein that plays a role in cell cycle progression, apoptosis and cellular transformation. It functions as a transcription factor that regulates transcription of specific target genes. Mutations, overexpression, rearrangement and translocation of this gene have been associated with a variety of hematopoietic tumors, leukemias and lymphomas, including Burkitt lymphoma. There is evidence to show that alternative translation initiations from an upstream, in-frame non-AUG (CUG) and a downstream AUG start site result in the production of two isoforms with distinct N-terminal. The synthesis of non-AUG initiated protein is suppressed in Burkitt′s lymphomas, suggesting its importance in the normal function of this gene. (provided by RefSeq)
MYC (MYC proto-oncogene) is a transcriptional factor and oncoprotein. c-myc is a member of MYC gene family. It is located on human chromosome 8q24. c-Myc gene codes for basic helix-loop-helix/leucine zipper (bHLH/LZ) transcription factor.
MYC (NP_002458, 330 a.a. ~ 439 a.a) partial recombinant protein with GST tag. MW of the GST tag alone is 26 KDa.
The cellular myelocytomatosis (c-myc) oncogene plays a major role in cellular proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. It acts as transcriptional regulator of gene expression. MYC (MYC proto-oncogene) may be essential for cancer initiation, promotion and therapy resistance. Overexpression of MYC in DLBCL (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma) results in poor outcome and invasive treatment when medicated with rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (R-CHOP).
