|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||31608 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (1:50 -1:500 dilutions) and Immunohistochemistry (1:10-1:20 dilutions). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody preferentially recognizes the p17 fragment of the active caspase-3 in samples from human, mouse, and rat origins|
|Other Names||CPP32 , CASP3, apopain, procaspase3, CPP32B, SCA-1, CPP-32, Apopain, Yama|
|Formulation||500 µl antigen affinity purified rabbit anti-Active Caspase-3 antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Caspase-3 (Active) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. At the onset of apoptosis it proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp-|-Gly-217' bond. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) between the basic helix-loop- helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. Involved in the cleavage of huntingtin. Triggers cell adhesion in sympathetic neurons through RET cleavage.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney. Moderate levels in brain and skeletal muscle, and low in testis. Also found in many cell lines, highest expression in cells of the immune system|

Caspase-3 has been extensively studied and implicated to play an important role in apoptosis. Active caspase-3 proteolytically cleaves and activates other caspases, as well as relevant targets in the cells (e.g., PARP). The affinity purified antibody recognizing the active forms of caspase-3 provides a new tool for identifying apoptotic cell populations in both tissue sections and cultured cells.
