Product Focus: TUNEL Apo-Green Detection Kit

DNA fragmentation represents a characteristic of late stage apoptosis. DNA fragmentation in apoptotic cells can be detected by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL).

Biotool™ TUNEL Apo-Green Detection Kit is a modified FITC-12-dUTP TUNEL Assay designed to provide simple, accurate and rapid detection of apoptotic cells. It measures nuclear DNA fragmentation, an important biochemical indicator of apoptosis by utilizing FITC-12-dUTP.

FITC-12-dUTP is more readily incorporated into DNA strand breaks than other larger ligands, giving rise to brighter signal that is sensitive and more accurate than traditional ligands. It also can be used to assay apoptotic cell death in both tissue sections and cultured cells.
