The cellular myelocytomatosis (c-myc) gene mapped to human chromosome 8q24, is the cellular homologue of the v-myc gene originally isolated from an avian myelocytomatosis virus. c-myc is a member of MYC gene family. c-Myc gene codes for basic helix-loop-helix/leucine zipper (bHLH/LZ) transcription factor that regulates the G1-S cell cycle transition.
Synthetic peptide sequence (AEEQKLISEEDLL) corresponding to the C-terminal region of human c-Myc
Monoclonal Anti-MYC, (C-terminal) antibody produced in mouse has been used in following studies:
- western blotting analysis
- chromatin immunoprecipitation quantitative PCR (ChIP-qPCR assays
- immunofluorescence microscopy
The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis. Suggested working dilution is 1-5 μg/mL of sample. Indicated dilution is recommended starting point for use of this product. Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator. Membrane permeabilization is required.
The cellular myelocytomatosis (c-myc) oncogene plays a vital role in cellular proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and acts as transcriptional regulator of gene expression. c-Myc expression is essential and sufficient to assist most of the cells to enter DNA synthetic (S) phase of the cell cycle. The encoded protein plays a crucial role in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis during cancer development and progression. c-Myc interacts with its binding partner Max and activates the transcription of growth promoting genes such as cyclin D2, ornithine decarboxylase and E2F1 and it also represses the transcription of multiple genes, especially p21 and p27, by binding to the transcription initiator element (Inr) in a complex with Max and either Sp1 or Miz1. 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).
