c-Myc Toolbox

The c-Myc oncogene encodes a transcription factor whose broad effects trigger selective gene expression amplification to promote cell growth and proliferation. Myc is one of the top targets for the development of cancer therapeutic options.

Active Motif can support early stage c-Myc research, screening and compound mechanism-of-action studies with our range of c-Myc products and services.

c-Myc Binding Assay

c-Myc Trans AM

Product:  c-Myc TransAM®

Function: Measures Global c-Myc binding activity.

miRNA Regulation of c-Myc


Product:   LightSwitch 3´UTR & miRNA Reporter Collections

Function: Measure miRNA regulation of c-Myc.

Starting Material: Cells

Throughput: High

Notes:   3´UTR reporter constructs are available for c-Myc, E2F, and other c-Myc pathway related genes. A large collection of miRNA mimics are also available including those known to be regulated by c-Myc or to interact with c-Myc transcripts (mir34a, mir451).
