|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||39449 Da|
|Application & Usage||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.|

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.
