MYC oncogene

This proto-oncogene causes cancers (carcinomas and sarcomas) and is found in the avian myelocytomatosis virus. If translocated, it can cause Burkitt's lymphoma; if amplified, it can cause lung, breast, and cervical carcinomas. It is found in both chickens and has an analog in humans which is located on the long arm of chromosome 8.
