|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Dilution||IHC-P (5 µg/ml), WB (0.5 µg/ml),|
|Other Names||Caspase-1, CASP-1, 188.8.131.52, Interleukin-1 beta convertase, IL-1BC, Interleukin-1 beta-converting enzyme, ICE, IL-1 beta-converting enzyme, p45, Caspase-1 subunit p20, Caspase-1 subunit p10, CASP1, IL1BC, IL1BCE|
|Target/Specificity||16 amino acid peptide from near the carboxy-terminus of human Caspase-1|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles. Store undiluted.|
|Precautions||CASP1 / Caspase 1 Antibody (C-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Thiol protease that cleaves IL-1 beta between an Asp and an Ala, releasing the mature cytokine which is involved in a variety of inflammatory processes. Important for defense against pathogens. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). Can also promote apoptosis. Upon inflammasome activation, during DNA virus infection but not RNA virus challenge, controls antiviral immunity through the cleavage of CGAS, rendering it inactive (PubMed:28314590).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in larger amounts in spleen and lung. Detected in liver, heart, small intestine, colon, thymus, prostate, skeletal muscle, peripheral blood leukocytes, kidney and testis. No expression in the brain.|
