Digoxigenin-11-dUTP is enzymatically incorporated into DNA/cDNA as substitute for its natural counterpart dTTP. The resulting Digoxigenin-labeled DNA/cDNA probes are subsequently detected using Digoxigenin-antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), alkaline phosphatase (AP) or a fluorescent dye. Optimal substrate properties and thus labeling efficiency is ensured by a 11-atom linker attached to the C5 position of uridine.

Recommended Digoxigenin-11-dUTP/dTTP ratio for PCR and Nick Translation: 35% Digoxigenin-11-dUTP/ 65% dTTP

Please note: The optimal final concentration of Digoxigenin-11-dUTP may very depending on the application and assay conditions. For optimal product yields and high incorporation rates an individual optimization of the Digoxigenin-11-dUTP/dTTP ratio is recommended.
