Reactivity Human, Mouse, Rat
Host Rabbit
Clonality Monoclonal
Clone Names EP876Y
Calculated MW 49736 Da
Gene ID 838
Other Names Caspase-5, CASP-5, ICE(rel)-III, Protease ICH-3, Protease TY, Caspase-5 subunit p20, Caspase-5 subunit p10, CASP5, ICH3
Target/Specificity A synthetic peptide corresponding to N-terminal residues of human Caspase-5 was used as an immunogen. Based on amino acids homology, this antibody will not recognize either p20 or p10 subunits of Caspase-5.

Caspases are a family of cytosolic aspartate-specific cysteine proteases involved in the initiation and execution of apoptosis. Caspase-5 (ICH-3, ICEREL-III, TY protease) is a member of the caspase-1 subfamily and it is an upstream mediator of apoptosis. Caspase-5 is highly expressed in lung, liver, and skeletal muscle, and similar to Caspase-4, its overexpression can induce cellular apoptosis (1). A tetramer, Caspase-5 separates into two subunits of a 20kda (p20) and 10kda (p10) after activation. In vitro, Caspase-5 can be cleaved by GranB, a major player in Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) induced apoptosis (2). In vivo, the Caspase-5 expression is elevated by LPS and IFNg. Caspase-5 induced apoptosis can be inhibited by CrmA and Bcl-2. Caspase-5 has also been implicated in cellular inflammatory response and in the microsatellite mutator pathway for cancer (3).
