|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||33310 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml) and immunofluorescence. However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects the large subunit (18 kDa) of the active caspase-6. The antibody does not recognize other caspases.|
|Other Names||CASP6, CASP-6 , MCH2|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-active caspase-6 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Caspase-6 (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. Cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in vitro, as well as lamins. Overexpression promotes programmed cell death.|

Caspase family of cysteine proteases has been shown to play a key role in apoptosis. Similar to other caspases, caspase-6 is also synthesized as an inactive pro-enzyme that is processed in cells undergoing apoptosis. Together with caspase-3, caspase-6 is one of the major caspases in apoptotic cells, and functions downstream of apoptosis inhibitors Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. Caspase-6 has also been shown involving in the proteolysis of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) and nuclear lamin A.
