Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
DFFA, DFF-45, ICAD, DFF1
Apoptosis occurs during normal cellular development and involves dramatic changes in cellular structure. Disruption of apoptosis may contribute to cancer as well as many other types of diseases. Recently, a human DNA fragmentation factor (DFF45) was identified. DFF is composed of two subunts: DFF40 and DFF45. Cleavage of DFF45, which is mediated by caspase-3, leads to DFF40’s activation as a nuclease. Activation of DFF40 can lead to DNA fragmentation, a hallmark of apoptosis.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide mapping to the N-terminus of mouse DFF45
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) immunoaffinity purified rabbit DFF45 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). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects the 45 kDa and 28 kDa proteins, corresponding to the apparent molecular weight of DFF45/ICADL, and ICADS in immunoblots.
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.
