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

Mouse carbohydrate sulfotransferase 3, also known as Chondroitin 6-O-sulfotransferase 1, Chondroitin 6-sulfotransferase and CHST3, is a single-pass type I I membrane protein which belongs to the sulfotransferase 1 family and Gal / GlcNAc / GalNAc subfamily. CHST3 is widely expressed in adult tissues. It is expressed in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle and pancreas. CHST3 is also expressed in various immune tissues such as spleen, lymph node, thymus and appendix. CHST3 catalyzes the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of the N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residue of chondroitin. It is a chondroitin sulfate which constitutes the predominant proteoglycan present in cartilage and is distributed on the surfaces of many cells and extracellular matrices. It can also sulfate Gal residues of keratan sulfate, another glycosaminoglycan, and the Gal residues in sialyl N-acetyllactosamine (sialyl LacNAc) oligosaccharides. It may play a role in the maintenance of naive T-lymphocytes in the spleen. Defects in CHST3 are the cause of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia Omani type (SED Omani type) which is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by normal length at birth but severely reduced adult height (110-130 cm), severe progressive kyphoscoliosis, arthritic changes with joint dislocations, genu valgum, cubitus valgus, mild brachydactyly, camptodactyly, microdontia and normal intelligence. As a consequence of the arthropathy and the contractures, affected individuals develop restricted joint movement. Defects in CHST3 are also a cause of humerospinal dysostosis (HSD) which is characterized by bifurcation of the ends of the humerus, subluxation in the elbow joints, widened iliac bones, talipes equinovarus and coronal cleft vertebrae. Congenital, progressive heart disease, possibly with fatal outcome, is observed in some patients.
