This is based on the monoclonal 9E10, available from ATCC, I think. So you
can produce all you want cheaply. Been used to tag MAP kinase, raf, ras
without apparent problem. I've used their constructs with this tag and
because 9E10 is not sensitive, you don't have much trouble with endogenous
c-myc provided you can over-express your tagged protein.

You have to buy this monoclonal from IBI, don't you? Doubt if it comes
