Background Information

MYCN, also named as BHLHE37 and NMYC, is a transcription factor. It is primarily expressed in normal developing embryos and is thought to be critical in brain and other neural development. It is often amplified in human neuroblastomas. IR34A can suppress MYCN expression, it suggest MYCN has a role in cell growth. The expression of the MCYN is upregulated in a variety of human tumors, most frequently neuroblastoma, where the level of expression appears to increase as the tumor progresses. The calculated molecuar weight of MYCN is 50 kDa, but Phosphorylated MYCN is about 65-70 kDa. MYCN exsits two isoforms and MV of isoform is respectively 65 kDa and 45 kDa. (PMID: 19615087 )

Tom (Verified Customer) (08-22-2020)

I saw a specific ~60 kDa band when performing western blots using this MYCN antibody. The band is bigger than molecular weight of MYCN, probably due to post-translational modifications.

  • Applications: Western Blot
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:1000
  • Cell Tissue Type: Mouse heart

Tom (Verified Customer) (08-22-2020)

I performed immunofluorescence using this antibody. I observed very strong MYCN signal in mouse heart tissue sections. However, I saw cytoplasmic staining in addition to nuclear staining. It is probably due to MYCN's localization to both cytoplasm and nuclei or this antibody has some background staining.

  • Applications: Immunofluorescence
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:100
  • Cell Tissue Type: Mouse heart

Jessica (Verified Customer) (10-31-2018)

Strongest band observed was around 60 kDa with some much weaker bands much higher and much lower observable with higher exposures. Ab had affinity for BE2C cell lysate, but did not bind the c-myc expressed in Sy5Y cells on the same blot. I used 2 % skim milk PBST for incubation. As MYCN Abs go this one is pretty good!
