Application Abreviews Notes
ChIP Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22053792Use 3 µg of antibody
ChIP/Chip Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22053792Use 3 µg of antibody
IP Use at an assay dependent dilution. Suitable with and without SDS
WB Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detects a band of approximately 64, 67 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa). The 67 kDa species is phospho myc.


  • FunctionParticipates in the regulation of gene transcription. Binds DNA in a non-specific manner, yet also specifically recognizes the core sequence 5'-CAC[GA]TG-3'. Seems to activate the transcription of growth-related genes.
  • Involvement in diseaseNote=Overexpression of MYC is implicated in the etiology of a variety of hematopoietic tumors.
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving MYC may be a cause of a form of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Translocation t(8;12)(q24;q22) with BTG1.
    Defects in MYC are a cause of Burkitt lymphoma (BL) [MIM:113970]. A form of undifferentiated malignant lymphoma commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. Note=Chromosomal aberrations involving MYC are usually found in Burkitt lymphoma. Translocations t(8;14), t(8;22) or t(2;8) which juxtapose MYC to one of the heavy or light chain immunoglobulin gene loci.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by PRKDC. Phosphorylation at Thr-58 and Ser-62 by GSK3 is required for ubiquitination and degradation by the proteasome.
    Ubiquitinated by the SCF(FBXW7) complex when phosphorylated at Thr-58 and Ser-62, leading to its degradation by the proteasome. In the nucleoplasm, ubiquitination is counteracted by USP28, which interacts with isoform 1 of FBXW7 (FBW7alpha), leading to its deubiquitination and preventing degradation. In the nucleolus, however, ubiquitination is not counteracted by USP28, due to the lack of interaction between isoform 4 of FBXW7 (FBW7gamma) and USP28, explaining the selective MYC degradation in the nucleolus. Also polyubiquitinated by the DCX(TRUSS) complex.

  • Immunoprecipitation analysis of H9 Human ES cells, using ab17355 to immunoprecipitate c-Myc.

    Cells were lysed in lysis buffer before being subjected to immunoprecipitation using the primary antibody overnight. Immunocomplexes were recovered with protein-G-sepharose beads. Samples were resolved by SDS-PAGE before transfer to PVDF membrane. The membranes were incubated with the appropriate antibodies and analysed by western blot.
