This antibody was purified from whole rabbit serum prepared by repeated immunizations with Myc epitope tag peptide E-Q-K-L-I-S-E-E-D-L conjugated to KLH using maleimide. The sequence corresponds to aa 410-419 of human c-Myc.
This affinity purified antibody is directed against human c-myc and is useful in determining its presence in various assays. This polyclonal anti-Myc-tag antibody detects overexpressed proteins containing the Myc epitope tag. The antibody recognizes the Myc-tag (Glu-Gln-Lys-Leu-Ile-Ser-Glu-Glu-Asp-Leu) fused to either the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins in transfected or transformed cells. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-biotin and anti-Rabbit Serum.
Anti-myc has utility to detect the fusion protein of the myc epitope cloned along with the target gene. As such, anti-myc/myc can be used to identify fusion proteins containing the myc epitope. The antibody recognizes the Myc tag fused either to the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins. This antibody has been tested by ELISA and western blotting against both the immunizing peptide and myc containing recombinant proteins. Although not tested, this antibody is likely functional for immunoprecipitation and immunocytochemistry. Biotin conjugated anti-EPITOPE tag antibodies are generally suitable for immunoblotting, ELISA, immunohistochemistry, immunomicroscopy as well as other antibody based assays using streptavidin or avidin conjugates. The applications listed have been tested for the unconjugated form of this product. Other forms have not been tested.
