Takara Bio's ssDNA Antibody is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes ssDNA. The ssDNA Antibody was raised in rabbit and can be used for immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of apoptotic cells.
The process of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is essential for normal cellular differentiation and tissue homeostasis. One characteristic of cells undergoing apoptosis is the production of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA). The ssDNA Antibody can specifically react with ssDNA. Compared with the TUNEL assay, immunohistochemical detection using this antibody provides an easier and more convenient method for detecting apoptotic cells.
