TACS-XL In Situ Apoptosis Kit [HRP] Summary

The TACS-XL® In Situ Apoptosis Detection Kit - Blue Label is a TUNEL assay designed for fixed cells, embedded tissue, and frozen tissue using light and electron microscopy. This kit utilizes a novel approach for the detection of apoptosis that is based on incorporation of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) at the 3’ OH ends of the DNA fragments that form during apoptosis. This detection system uses a biotin conjugated anti-BrdU antibody and streptavidin-horseradish peroxidase.

Apoptosis is characterized by a number of intracellular phenomena such as membrane blebbing, chromatin condensation and nuclear DNA fragmentation. Detection of nuclear DNA fragmentation is a widely accepted method to assay for apoptosis and can be performed in situ by incorporating labeled nucleotides onto the free 3' OH ends of DNA fragments using terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase enzyme (TdT). This type of assay, often referred to as the TUNEL assay, allows monitoring of apoptosis in cell samples or in tissue sections, providing histological localization of apoptotic events.
