|Application ||WB, IP|
|Calculated MW||49979 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml) and immunoprecipitation (10-20 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The anti-active caspase-9 antibody recognizes only the cleaved caspase-9 (37 kDa). It does not recognize full-length caspase-9 or any other caspases.|
|Other Names||CASP-9, EC 18.104.22.168, ICE-like apoptotic protease 6, ICE-LAP6, Apoptotic protease Mch-6, Apoptotic protease-activating factor 3, Apaf-3|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 50% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Caspase-9 (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. Binding of caspase-9 to Apaf- 1 leads to activation of the protease which then cleaves and activates caspase-3. Promotes DNA damage-induced apoptosis in a ABL1/c-Abl-dependent manner. Proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP- ribose) polymerase (PARP) (By similarity).|

Caspases are synthesized as inactive pro-enzymes that are processed to active form in cells undergoing apoptosis. Caspase-9 is an important member of the caspase family. Upon induction of apoptosis, Cytochrome c released from mitochondria associates with pro-caspase-9 (47 kDa) and Apaf-1. The complex processes pro-caspase-9 into a large subunit (37 kDa/17 kDa) and a small subunit (10 kDa). Cleaved caspase-9 further processes other caspases including caspase-3 and caspase-6, to initiate a caspase cascade leading to apoptosis. The affinity purified antibody recognizing the active forms of caspase-9 provides a new tool for identifying apoptotic cell populations in both tissue sections and cultured cells.
