Swiss-port # O54788 Mouse DNA fragmentation factor subunit beta

Gene Symbol Dffb
Gene Full Name DNA fragmentation factor, beta subunit
Background Cell death signals are transduced by death domain-containing adapter molecules and members of the caspase family of proteases. These death signals finally cause the degradation of chromosomal DNA by activated DNase. A mouse Dnase that causes DNA fragmentation was identified recently and designated CAD (for caspase activated deoxy-ribonuclease). The human homologue of mouse CAD was more recently identified and termed CPAN, DFF40, and human CAD. DFF45/ICAD is the inhibitory protein of DFF40/CAD with which it forms complexes. Upon cleavage by activated caspase, DFF40/CAD is released and activated and eventually causes the degradation of DNA in the nuclei. Activation of DFF40/CAD is, which causes DNA degradation, is the hallmark of apoptotic cell death.
Function Nuclease that induces DNA fragmentation and chromatin condensation during apoptosis. Degrades naked DNA and induces apoptotic morphology. [UniProt]
