c-Jun-like immunoreactivity in apoptosis is the result of a crossreaction with neoantigenic sites exposed by caspase-3-mediated proteolysis.

Previous reports in various cells and species have shown that apoptotic cells are specifically and strongly labeled by certain c-Jun/N-terminal antibodies, such as c-Jun/sc45. This kind of immunoreactivity is confined to the cytoplasm. It is not due to c-Jun but appears to be related to c-Jun-like neoepitopes generated during apoptosis. This study was… CONTINUE READING
