The v-myc oncogene, initially identified in the MC29 avian retrovirus, causes myelocytomas, carcinomas, sarcomas and lymphomas, and belongs to a family of oncogenes conserved throughout evolution. In humans the family consists of five genes: c-myc, N-myc, R-myc, L-myc and B-myc. Amplification of the N-myc gene has been found in human neuroblastomas and cell lines. The extent of N-myc amplification correlates well with the stage of neuroblastoma disease. Immunological studies have shown that the human N-myc gene gives rise to at least two nuclear phosphoproteins that exhibit relatively short (30 min) half lives in vivo and exhibit DNA binding properties in vitro.
Recombinant protein corresponding to human N-Myc.
