DNA damage repair markers

Unrepaired DNA damage leads to mutagenesis or cell death.

Unrepaired DNA damage leads to mutagenesis or cell death.

DNA mutations are a known factor in the tumorigenesis of many cancer types including colon and skin cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and breast or ovarian cancer.


The accumulation of DNA damage in myocytes or neurons can result in degenerative diseases (1). The human brain consumes 20% of the body’s entire oxygen intake to generate sufficient energy to maintain its proper functioning. Since ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) are a natural side-product of the pathways of this energy production, they can be easily accumulated in the brain and induce DNA damage.

Every day, cells are exposed to a broad range of DNA-damaging factors (2). As a safeguard for genome stability, they have developed many repair pathways, especially for damage from oxidation, hydrolysis, dimerization of DNA-bases, and single or double strand DNA breaks (Figure 1).

Climate change and increased environmental pollution are extending DNA-damaging factors. It is therefore important to understand the DNA damage repair mechanisms. Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich, and Aziz Sancarwere pioneers in discovering the molecular basis of DNA damage repair pathways (2015, with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry).

Loading control antibodies
GAPDH Antibody
Catalog no.: 60004-1-Ig

GAPDH is commonly used as a protein loading control in western blot due to its consistently high expression in most cell types. This enzyme participates in several cellular events such as glycolysis, DNA repair, and apoptosis.

Proteintech monoclonal GAPDH antibodies are raised against a whole-protein antigen of human origin and have over 2,670 citations.

Beta Actin Antibody (KD/KO validated)
Catalog no.: 66009-1-Ig 

Beta-actin is usually used as a loading control due to its broad and consistent expression across all eukaryotic cell types and the fact that expression levels of this protein are not affected by most experimental treatments.

66009-1-Ig has been cited over 1,135 publications and has wide species reactivity.
