      DescriptionMuse™Multi-Color DNA Damage Kit
      OverviewEMD Millipore’s Muse™ Multi-Color DNA Damage kit is designed to enable researchers a quick and easy way to detect the activation of ATM and H2A.X using the Muse Cell Analyzer. The kit was designed and optimized using a DNA damaging reagent, Etoposide, on HeLa cells as a model system. But the kit can be used with other human cell lines to investigate both the physical and chemical factors which can induce the DNA damage response through the ATM dependent signaling pathway. Data generated using the Muse™ Cell Analyzer along with the corresponding Muse™ software module provides statistical values measuring:

      • Percentage of negative cells (e.g. no DNA damage)
      • Percentage of ATM activated cells
      • Percentage of H2A.X activated cells
      • Percentage of DNA double-strand breaks (dual activation of both ATM and H2A.X)

      The Muse™ Multi-Color DNA Damage Kit includes two directly conjugated antibodies, a phospho-specific ATM (Ser1981)-PE and a phospho-specific Histone H2A.X-PECy5 conjugated antibody to measure the extent of DNA damage in testing samples. This two color kit is designed to detect the phosphorylation state of ATM and Histone H2A.X simultaneously by flow analysis. Together, two color analysis of ATM and Histone H2A.X activation in multiplex provides a more reliable detection method for assessing the DNA damage signaling pathway. This antibody pair provides a sensitive and valuable tool to study the factors that induce DNA damage and/or affect DNA repair, and allows one to explore the linkage between DNA damage, cell cycle checkpoints, and initiation of apoptosis. Both antibodies provided in the kit are carefully titrated and optimized together to ensure maximal performance when run in multiplex, alleviating the need for any additional optimization. This kit contains optimized fixation, permeabilization, and assay buffers to provide researchers with a complete solution for DNA damage signaling analysis.

      The Muse™ Multi-Color DNA Damage Kit is optimized on the Muse™ Cell Analyzer. The Muse™ System makes sophisticated fluorescent-based analysis fast, easy, convenient, and affordable. Sample preparation is minimal, and after loading samples onto the Muse™ Cell Analyzer, the intuitive software provides detailed or summary analysis of your cell sample in a few short steps. Sufficient reagent is provided for the preparation and analysis of 50 tests.
