The ChromoTek Myc-Trap® is an affinity resin for immunoprecipitation and purification of Myc-tagged proteins.

It comprises an anti-Myc-tag Nanobody/ VHH coupled to beads.

The Myc-Trap recognizes the Myc-tag sequence motif EQKLISEEDL at the N-terminus, C-terminus, or internal site of the fusion protein. The Myc-Trap does not bind endogenous c-myc.

About Myc-tag

The Myc-tag is derived from the human c-myc oncogene. It is a commonly used epitope tag to detect expression of recombinant proteins in bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cell systems. Myc-tag is also named c-myc tag.

The sequence motif is EQKLISEEDL.
