Myc Tag Info

A myc tag is a polypeptide protein tag derived from the c-myc gene product that can be added to a protein using recombinant DNA technology. It can be used for affinity chromatography, then used to separate recombinant, overexpressed protein from wild type protein expressed by the host organism. It can also be used in the isolation of protein complexes with multiple subunits.

A myc tag can be used in many different assays that require recognition by an antibody. If there is no antibody against the studied protein, adding a myc-tag allows one to follow the protein with an antibody against the Myc epitope. Examples are cellular localization studies by immunofluorescence or detection by Western blotting.

The peptide sequence of the myc-tag is: N-EQKLISEEDL-C (1202 Da). It can be fused to the C-terminus and the N-terminus of a protein. It is advisable not to fuse the tag directly behind the signal peptide of a secretory protein, since it can interfere with translocation into the secretory pathway.

Background

SCLY, also known as selenocysteine lyase, belongs to the class-V pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. It is a novel enzyme that exclusively decomposes L-selenocysteine into L-alanine and H2Se in various mammalian tissues. SCLY contains pyridoxal 5'-phosphate and weighs approximately 85,000. SCLY participates in selenoamino acid metabolism. It employs one cofactor, pyridoxal phosphate. Its maximum reactivity is at about pH 9.0. It was shown that 1 mol of selenocysteine is converted to equimolar amounts of alanine and H2Se. The following amino acids are insert: L-cysteine, L-serine, L-cysteine sulfinate, selenocysteamine, Se-ethyl-DL-selenocysteine, and L-selenohomocysteine. L-Cysteine (Ki, 1.0 mM) competes with L-selenocysteine (Km, 0.83mM) to inhibit the enzyme reaction.
