DNA: Detection of Thymine Dimer

Thymine (5-Methyluracil) is one of the four bases in the nucleic acid of DNA. are covalent bondings between adjacent thymine residues. These bondings are triggered by UV light rays for example. For detecting Thymine Dimer this anti-Thymine Dimer antibody (Clone KTM53) is being used in numerous current publications. Depending on the application the antibody is also employed as a HRP conjugate. Here you may find the most current publications, in which the use of anti-Thymine Dimer antibody is cited:
