Rabbit anti Murine CAD antibody recognizes murine CAD (Caspase Activated Deoxyribonuclease), the murine homologue of human DFF-40.
CAD is released and activated by caspase cleavage of ICAD, and eventually causes degradation of nuclear DNA.
Rabbit anti Murine CAD antibody recognizes a band of ~40 kDa in western blotting.

Applications of CAD antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1 This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
