Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. 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.
Purification The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by negative adsorption and affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name ICAD (DFFA Antibody Abstract)
Background Apoptosis is essential in maintaining normal cellular homeostasis and for animal development. Morphological as well as biochemical changes are a hallmark of apoptosis and include membrane blebbing, chromosomal condensation and DNA fragmentation. These changes are caused by a class of cysteine proteases called caspases, which, upon activation can cleave multiple cytoplasmic and nuclear substrates. Caspases, once activated by a proapoptotic signal can induce a DNase, designated DFF/CAD to cleave these nuclear substrates. In growing, non-apoptotic cells DFF/CAD is complexed with its inhibitor, ICAD. Activation of caspase-3 causes the cleavage of ICAD, releasing CAD to cleave chromosomal DNA. ICAD has a molecular weight of approximately ~45 kDa in SDS-PAGE. The antibody recognizes the full length and cleaved form (~18 kDa) of mouse ICAD. A peptide corresponding to amino acids 312 to 331 of mouse ICAD was used as immunogen.
Molecular Weight 45 kDa
Pathways Apoptosis, Caspase Cascade in Apoptosis
Application Notes Applications include western blot analysis (1:1000-1:4000). Mouse lung lysate is recommended as a positive control.
