Anti-DFF40/CAD (I18) Antibody
Catalog No.: 2107
Size: 100ug IgG in PBS, pH 7.4, purified by immunoaffinity chromatography.
Cell death signals are transduced by death domain-containing adapter molecules and members of the caspase family of proteases. These death signals finally cause the degradation of chromosomal DNA by activated DNase. A mouse Dnase that causes DNA fragmentation was identified recently and designated CAD (for caspase activated deoxy- ribonuclease). The human homologue of mouse CAD was more recently identified and termed CPAN, DFF40, and human CAD. DFF45/ICAD is the inhibitory protein of DFF40/CAD with which it forms complexes. Upon cleavage by activated caspase, DFF40/CAD is released and activated and eventually causes the degradation of DNA in the nuclei. Activation of DFF40/CAD is, which causes DNA degradation, is the hallmark of apoptotic cell death.
Antigen: Peptide corresponding to aa 147-164 near the center of murine CAD (accession no. NP_031885). The sequence differs from human DFF40 by two amino acids.
Host Species: Rabbit
Preservatives: 0.02% sodium azide.
This antibody recognizes human, mouse, and rat DFF40/CAD (40kDa).
Immunoblotting: use at 1ug/ml
Immunocytochemistry: use at 5ug/ml.
Positive control: Whole cell lysate of K562 or Jurkat cells.
These are recommended concentrations. Enduser should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Dilute in PBS or medium which is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
This antibody is stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
For in vitro investigational use only. Not for use in therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
