General description

Epitope tags are useful for the labeling and detection of proteins using immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation and immunostaining techniques. Due to their small size, they are unlikely to affect the tagged protein′s biochemical properties. The Myc epitope tag is widely used to detect expression of recombinant proteins in bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cell systems.


Other species cross-reactivity not tested.

Recognizes and is specific for human Myc and recombinant proteins containing the Myc epitope tag.


Epitope: a.a. 409-420

Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 409-420 of human Myc (MEQKLISEEDLN).


This antibody is reported to detect Myc-tagged proteins in transfected cells.
