Myc Tag Info

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

Cell surface A33 antigen, also known as glycoprotein A33, is a single-pass type I  membrane protein which is expressed in normal gastrointestinal epithelium and in 95% of colon cancers. GPA33 contains one Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain and one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. The open reading frame encodes a 319-amino acid polypeptide having a putative secretory signal sequence and 3 potential glycosylation sites. The predicted mature protein has a 213-amino acid extracellular region, a single transmembrane domain, and a 62-amino acid intracellular tail. Intracellular traffic and recycling to the cell surface appear to play a major role in GPA33 function and to have an influence on its surface density superseding translational regulation. GPA33 has become a promising target of immunologic therapy strategies, but its biologic function and potential role in tumorigenesis are unknown. EpCAM protein and GPA33 mRNA expressions are specific and sensitive markers of Barrett's metaplasia (BM). GPA33 may also play a role in cell-cell recognition and signaling.
