The c-MYC gene, located on human chromosome 8, has three exons. It codes for transcription factor that regulates expression of many genes. c-MYC has a pivotal function in growth control, differentiation and apoptosis in cells. It is involved in regulation of cell metabolism through control of expression of genes involved in glucose and glutamine metabolism. Deregulated MYC oncogene produces transcription factor that alters global gene expression through transcriptional regulation, resulting in formation of typical tumor characteristics (uncontrolled growth, immortality, loss of contact inhibition...) and induction of tumorigenesis. MYC is overexpressed in a majority of human tumors, including malignant neoplasms of lymphoid, mesenchymal and epithelial origin.
