This Caspase-3 antibodyis to be used only for research purposes and not for diagnostics..
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Human (Homo sapiens) ; Due to limited knowledge and inability to test the antibody against all known species, we cannot guarantee that no other cross reactivity can occur.
The stated application concentrations are suggested starting points. Titration of the Caspase-3 antibody may be required due to differences in protocols and secondary/substrate sensitivity.
An amino acid sequence from the C-terminus of the human protein (CAMLKQYADKLEFMHIL) was used as the immunogen for this Caspase-3 antibody. This amino acid sequence is from the small subunit.
Human and some mouse caspases are active in apoptosis and cell death and even in necrosis and inflammation. CASP Gene and orthologous enzymes have been identifies successfully in the signal transduction cascade and pathways.
After reconstitution, the Caspase-3 antibody can be stored for up to one month at 4oC. For long-term, aliquot and store at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Caspase-3, also known as YAMA, CPP32 or APOPAIN, is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease family known to interact with family members -8 and -9. It is encoded by the CASP3 gene. Tiso et al.(1996) used radiation hybrid mapping to localize the gene to human chromosome 4q33-q35.1. Fernandes-Alnemri et al.(1994) found that overexpression of CASP3 in insect cells induced apoptosis. Coexpression of the two CASP3 subunits in insect cells also resulted in apoptosis. Tewari et al.(1995) showed that purified human CASP1 cleaved the CASP3 proenzyme into a proteolytically active form and that activated Caspase-3 cleaved PARP into the 85-kD apoptotic form.
