|Calculated MW||46281 Da|
|Positive Control||Western Blot: Recombinant protein|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody detects proform (~46 kDa), intermediate (~33-36 kDa), and the fully cleaved (~20-25 kDa) caspase-9.|
|Other Names||Apoptotic protease Mch-6, Apoptotic protease-activating factor 3, ICE-like apoptotic protease 6|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) of antibody in PBS pH 7.2 containing 0.01 % BSA, 0.01 % thimerosal, and 50 % glycerol.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Caspase-9 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).|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous, with highest expression in the heart, moderate expression in liver, skeletal muscle, and pancreas. Low levels in all other tissues. Within the heart, specifically expressed in myocytes.|

Caspase-9 is one of the most important caspases among the caspase family members. Caspase-9 is synthesized as inactive pro-enzyme that is processed in cells undergoing apoptosis. The processed caspase-9 consists of large (32-35 kD) and small (10 kD) subunits which associate to form an active enzyme. Activated caspase-9 in turn cleaves and activates caspase-3, one of the proteases responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many key proteins in apoptosis.
