GeneID: 1676 Human DFFA

Swiss-port # O00273 Human DNA fragmentation factor subunit alpha

Gene Symbol DFFA
Gene Full Name DNA fragmentation factor, 45kDa, alpha polypeptide
Background A human DNA fragmentation factor (DFF) which is cleaved by caspase-3 during apoptosis was identified recently. The mouse homologue of human DFF was identified as a DNase inhibitor and was designated ICAD. Upon cleavage of DFF/ICAD, a caspase activated deoxyribonuclease (CAD) is released and activated and eventually causes the degradation of DNA in nuclei. Cleavage of CAD inhibitor molecule DFF/ICAD, which causes DNase activation and DNA degradation, is a hallmark of apoptotic cell death.
Function Inhibitor of the caspase-activated DNase (DFF40). [UniProt]
Research Area Cell Biology and Cellular Response antibody; Cell Death antibody; Gene Regulation antibody; Metabolism antibody
Calculated MW 37 kDa
PTM Caspase-3 cleaves DFF45 at 2 sites to generate an active factor.
