Myc-Tag Antibody #2272
|W IF-IC F||All||Transfected Only||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: All=All species expected
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Myc-Tag Antibody detects recombinant proteins containing the Myc epitope tag. The antibody recognizes the Myc-tag fused to either the amino or carboxy terminus of targeted proteins in transfected cells.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 410-419 of human c-Myc (EQKLISEEDL). Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of cell extracts alone (lane 1), cells expressing Myc tagged to the carboxy terminus of the protein (lane 2) and Myc tagged to the amino terminus of the protein (lane 3), using Myc-Tag Antibody.
Flow cytometric analysis of COS cells, untreated (blue) or Myc transfected (green), using Myc-Tag Antibody.
Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of COS cells transfected with a Myc-tagged protein (left) or untransfected (right) using Myc-Tag Antibody. Actin filaments have been labeled with DY-554 phalloidin (red).
Epitope tags are useful for the labeling and detection of proteins using immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation, and immunostaining techniques. Because of 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 (1).
