Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
DFFB, CAD, DFF-40 , CPAN , DFF2
DFF is composed of two subunits: DFF40/CAD and DFF45/ICAD. Human DFF45 and its mouse homologue ICAD are the inhibitors of DFF40 and CAD, respectively. Cleavage of DFF45, which is mediated by caspase-3, leads to DFF40’s activation as a nuclease. Activation of DFF40/CAD can lead to DNA fragmentation, a hallmark of apoptosis. DFF40 mRNA is expressed in limited number of human tissues: pancreas, spleen, prostate, and ovary.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 208 of mouse DFF40
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) immunoaffinity purified rabbit DFF40 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (2-8 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects a 43 kDa DFF40/CAD of human, mouse and rat origins. Mouse kidney tissue lysate can be used as a positive control.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
