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

Carboxylesterase 2 (CES2) is a member of the carboxylesterase family and belongs to the multigene family. Carboxylesterase 2 is responsible for the hydrolysis of ester- and amide-bond-containing drugs such as cocaine and beroin. It also serves to hydrolyze long-chain fatty acid esters and thioesters. It is speculated that carboxylesterases may play a role in lipid metabolism and the blood-brain barrier system and together with isform 1, are a serine esterase involved in both drug metabolism and activation. Human carboxylesterase 2 is commonly expressed in tumor tissues and irinotecan, a topoisomerase I inhibitor commonly used in the treatment of many solid tumors.
