Peptide corresponding to amino acids 347 to 360 of human DNase II precursor.
Apoptosis is characterized by several morphological nuclear changes including chromatin condensation and nuclear fragmentation. These changes are triggered by the activation of members of caspase family, caspase activated DNase, and several novel proteins including AIF and Acinus. DNase II causes both chromatin condensation and DNAfragmentation (Zamzami & Kroemer, 1999). The genes encoding human (Yasuda et al.1998, Shiokawa & Tanuma, 1998, Baker et al, 1998), porcine, and murine DNase II have been cloned (Krieser & Eastman, 1998). The DNaseII gene encodes a 40 kDa proenzyme. The mature enzymeconsists of two non-identical subunits, the 32 kDa (a) and 12kDa (b) chains, generated by proteolytic processing. Overexpression of DNase II induces chromatin condensation (Shiokawa & Tanuma, 1998). DNase II is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues.
