Depositor Comments

Alternate plasmid names: pD40-His-c-Myc; pcDNA-DEST40 Myc wt

This His6-tagged c-Myc plasmid was created by PCR amplification of the coding sequence for wild-type murine c-Myc2 from the CMVMyc plasmid (Hann et al., Genes Dev. 1994, PMID: 7958908) with a CACC 5′ extension added to the 5′ primer for cloning into the TOPO entry clone from Invitrogen (Carlsbad, CA). This sequence was then moved into the pDEST-40 mammalian expression vector using Gateway technology (Invitrogen), creating pD40-His-c-Myc.

For plasmid usage information, see the associated article (Yeh et al. Nat Cell Biol. 2004) as well as Arnold et al. EMBO 2009 (PMID: 19131971).
