Western blot analysis of MYCN over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with MYCN Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00004613-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with MYCN monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 3H4 (Cat # H00004613-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene is a member of the MYC family and encodes a protein with a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain. This protein is located in the nucleus and must dimerize with another bHLH protein in order to bind DNA. Amplification of this gene is associated with a variety of tumors, most notably neuroblastomas. [provided by RefSeq
