    1. Antibody to Single Stranded DNA
    A widely used cytochemical technique for evaluation of DNA damage associated with apoptosis is the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated in situ end labeling or TUNEL assay. However the TUNEL assay has its drawbacks in that false positive staining makes the assay unreliable as a marker for apoptosis 1-5. A more universal and specific marker for detecting apoptosis associated DNA damage is to measure the morphological changes in nuclei that reflect chromatin condensation into compact masses. 6-7. Further biochemical and cytochemical studies have demonstrated the increased susceptibility of apoptotic DNA to thermal denaturation. Analysis of nuclei by scanning calorimetry to detect thermal induced DNA denaturation and analysis of DNA fragmentation by electrophoresis have shown that intact apoptotic DNA is susceptible to denaturation at lower temperatures then that of non-apoptotic cells 8.
      2. Antibody to Active Caspase 3
    Apoptosis is an evolutionarily conserved form of cell suicide, which follows a specialized cellular process. The central component of this process is a cascade of proteolytic enzymes called caspases. These enzymes participate in a series of reactions that are triggered in response to pro-apoptotic signals and result in cleavage of protein substrates, causing the disassembly of the cell 13. Caspases have been identified in organisms ranging from C. elegans to humans. The mammalian caspases play distinct roles in apoptosis and inflammation. In apoptosis, caspases are responsible for proteolytic cleavages that lead to cell disassembly (effector caspases), and are involved in upstream regulatory events (initiator caspases). An active caspase consists of two large (~20 kD) and two small (~10 kD) subunits to form two heterodimers which associate in a tetramer 14-16. As is common with other proteases, caspases are synthesized as precursors that undergo proteolytic maturation, either autocatalytically or in a cascade by enzymes with similar specificity 17. Caspase 3, also known as CPP-32, Apopain or Yama, is a key effector caspase in the apoptotic pathway 18. It is present in many different cell lineages and is responsible for the cleavage of a variety of molecules such as poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP), protein kinase Cd, actin and DNA-dependent protein kinase 19-20.
    Assay Principle:
    Cell Technology introduces a dual parameter antibody based assay to detect DNA damage (heat denatured single stranded DNA: ssDNA)9-12 and active caspase 3 in apoptotic cells. The assay utilizes a monoclonal antibody generated against ssDNA and a primary rabbit affinity purified polyclonal antibody raised against amino acid 163-175 of murine caspase 3 12. This neo epitope is present on the p18 subunit of cleaved caspase 3 21.

    细胞凋亡是一种细胞程序性死亡的过程,它遵循一个专门的细胞进化过程。这个过程的核心组件是一系列蛋白水解酶称为caspases。这些酶参与一系列的反应,触发凋亡信号和蛋白质底物的裂解,从而使细胞分解(13)。半胱氨酸蛋白酶存在于从线虫到人类的生物体中。哺乳动物的半胱氨酸蛋白酶在细胞凋亡和炎症中有独特作用。在细胞凋亡中,半胱氨酸蛋白酶的水解作用造成细胞解体(效应半胱氨酸蛋白酶),并参与上游调控(启动半胱氨酸蛋白酶)。一种活性半胱氨酸蛋白酶由两个大亚基(20kDa)和两个小亚基(10kDa)组成,形成两个异质二聚体,并与四聚体(14-16)联系。由于与其他蛋白酶相同,合成的半胱氨酸蛋白酶进行蛋白前体的成熟,无论是自动催化或具有类似的特异性的酶的级联(17)。caspase 3也叫做cpp - 32ApopainYama,是细胞凋亡途径中的一种重要效应半胱氨酸蛋白酶 18。它存在于许多不同的细胞系中,负责各种分子如多聚ADP -核糖聚合酶(PARP),蛋白激酶Cd,肌动蛋白和DNA依赖的蛋白激酶的裂解19-20
