|Application ||WB, IF|
|Calculated MW||48804 Da|
|Other Names||Myc proto-oncogene protein, Class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 39, bHLHe39, Proto-oncogene c-Myc, Transcription factor p64, MYC, BHLHE39|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Thr58 and Ser62 of human C-Myc was used as immunogen. The antibody only detects c-Myc phosphorylated on Threonine 58 and Serine 62. Predicted to cross-react with most species, based on sequence homology.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||c-Myc Antibody Phospho (pT58/pS62) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcription factor that binds DNA in a non-specific manner, yet also specifically recognizes the core sequence 5'- CAC[GA]TG-3'. Activates the transcription of growth-related genes.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus, nucleoplasm. Nucleus, nucleolus|

Oncogene-encoded proteins c-Myc, N-Myc, and L-Myc function in cell proliferation, differentiation and neoplastic disease. Amplification of the c-Myc gene has been found in several types of human tumors, the N-Myc gene in neuroblastomas (1), and the L-Myc gene in human small cell lung carcinomas (2). c-Myc protein is a transcription factor localized to the nucleus of the cell. It seems to be involved in activating the transcription of growth-related genes. c-Myc binds to DNA during transcription as a heterodimeric complex with Max. c-Myc is phosphorylated in vitro by p44/42 MAP kinase at Ser62 (3) and in vivo at both Thr58 and Ser62. Mutation of Thr58 and Ser62 to Ala inhibits the ability of c-Myc to activate transcription (3).
