Anti-ICAD (NT) Antibody
Catalog No.: 2425
Size: 100ug IgG in PBS, pH 7.4, purified by immunoaffinity chromatography.
A human DNA fragmentation factor (DFF) that is cleaved by caspase-3 during apoptosis was identified recently. The mouse homologue of human DFF was identified as a DNase inhibitor and was designated ICAD (inhibitor of caspase- activated DNase). Upon cleavage of DFF/ICAD, a caspase activated deoxyribonuclease (CAD) is released and activated and eventually causes the degradation of DNA in nuclei. Therefore, cleavage of CAD inhibitor molecule DFF/ICAD, which causes DNase activation and DNA degradation, is a hallmark of apoptotic cell death.
Antigen: Peptide corresponding to aa 2-21 at the N-terminus of mouse ICAD (accession no. O54786).
Host Species: Rabbit
Preservatives: 0.02% sodium azide.
This antibody recognizes non-cleaved (45kDa) and cleaved mouse ICAD.
Immunoblotting : use at 1ug/ml.
Immunohistochemistry: use at 2ug/ml.
Positive control: Mouse lung tissue lysate.
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.
