• Product name
    Anti-Myc tag antibody [9E10] (SureLight® Allophycocyanin)
    See all Myc tag primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [9E10] to Myc tag (SureLight® Allophycocyanin)
  • Host species
  • Conjugation
    SureLight® Allophycocyanin. Ex: 652nm, Em: 657nm
  • Specificity
    This antibody is specific for Myc tagged proteins. The Myc tag epitope (EQKLISEEDL) is located at the dimerization site of c-myc and therefore this antibody does not perform well at recognizing endogenous c-myc.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: Flow Cyt, FRETmore details
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide: AEEQKLISEE DLLRKRREQL KHKLE conjugated to KLH, corresponding to C terminal amino acids 408-432 of Human c-Myc.

  • Epitope
    ab72580 recognizes the 9E10 epitope (EQKLISEEDL sequence) derived from the human c-myc protein.
  • General notes

    Excitation max. 652 nm. Emission max. 657.5 nm. F/P 1:1.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab72580 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

ab73711 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


FRET Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Relevance
    Epitope tags are short peptide sequences that are easily recognized by tag-specific antibodies. Due to their small size, epitope tags do not affect the tagged protein’s biochemical properties. Most often sequences encoding the epitope tag are included with target DNA at the time of cloning to produce fusion proteins containing the epitope tag sequence. This allows anti-epitope tag antibodies to serve as universal detection reagents for any tag containing protein produced by recombinant means. This means that anti-epitope tag antibodies are a useful alternative to generating specific antibodies to identify, immunoprecipitate or immunoaffinity purify a recombinant protein. The anti-epitope tag antibody is usually functional in a variety of antibody-dependent experimental procedures. Expression vectors producing epitope tag fusion proteins are available for a variety of host expression systems including bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cells.
