|Description||The DNA fragmentation factor (DFF) is a complex composed of two subunits, DFF40/CAD and DFF45. DFF40/CAD is the nuclease responsible for DNA fragmentation during apoptosis. DFF45 is a molecular chaperone that inhibits the activity of DFF40/CAD. During apoptosis, activated caspase-3 cleaves DFF45 (45 kDa) into 30 and 11 kDa fragments, resulting in the release and activation of DFF40. Activated DFF40 causes DNA fragmentation which has long been considered to be a hallmark of apoptotic cell death. DFF40 migrates at approximately 40 kDa in SDS/PAGE. The antibodies recognize human, mouse, and rat DFF40/CAD. A peptide corresponding to amino acids (a.a.) 203 to 218 of human DFF40 was used as the immunogen.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
