The Myc Transcription Factor

By: Michael Reisfeld

Myc is a Transcription Factor Which Dimerizes With a Leucine Zipper and binds to DNA Via a Helix-Loop-Helix
overexpression of each specific myc protein is responsible for corresponding tumor types
Overexpression of Each Specific Myc Protein Is Responsible for Corresponding Tumor Types

Neuroblastoma (N-myc)

Burkitt’s Lymphoma (c-myc)

Small Cell Lung Cancer (L-myc)

burkitt s lymphoma
Burkitt’s Lymphoma
  • 2% of Lymphoproliferative Disorders
  • C-myc translocation associated with ALL cases
    • 85% involve translocation to IGH
