Myc-tag is a peptide tag derived from the c-Myc protein. The Myc-tag can be used for many capture and detection applications such as immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescence and protein purification.

Practical considerations and instructions
The ChromoTek Myc-Trap is an affinity resin that consists of Myc-binding protein derived from an Alpaca single domain antibody, also called anti-Myc VHH or “anti-Myc nanobody”, which is coupled to agarose and magnetic agarose beads. The Myc-Trap provides advantages over conventional IgG antibodies when applied in immunoprecipitation (IP) and affinity purification experiments:
ChromoTek Myc-Trap® is an effectiveness optimized tool for immunoprecipitation (IP/Co-IP) and affinity purification of Myc-tagged proteins. Depending on whether you use a single Myc-tag, i.e. 1xMyc (EQKLISEEDL) or a double Myc-tag fused to the protein of interest, i.e. 2xMyc (EQKLISEEDLEQKLISEEDL) you can adjust your experiment. Here, we introduce the epitope of Myc-Trap to discuss its performance for afore mentioned applications.
