|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E, IP|
|Other Accession||P55211, 28558771|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 46 kDa |
Observed: 45 kDa
|Application Notes||Caspase-9 antibody can be used for detection of caspase-9 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 2 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||Caspase-9 Antibody: MCH6, APAF3, APAF-3, PPP1R56, ICE-LAP6, MCH6, Caspase-9, Apoptotic protease Mch-6, CASP-9, caspase 9, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase|
|Target/Specificity||CASP9; Caspase-9 antibody is predicted to have no cross reactivity to other members in the caspase family.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Caspase-9 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|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 Antibody: Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain containing adapter molecules and members of the caspase family of proteases. A novel member in the caspase family was recently identified and designated ICE-LAP6, Mch6, and Apaf-3. Caspase-9 and Apaf-1 bind to each other, which leads to caspase-9 activation. Caspase-9 is also activated by granzyme B and CPP32. Activated caspase-9 cleaves and activates caspase-3 that is one of the key proteases, being responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many key proteins in apoptosis. Caspase-9 play a central role in cell death induced by a wide variety of apoptosis activators including TNFα, TRAIL, anti-CD-95, FADD, and TRADD. Caspase-9 is expressed in a variety of human tissues.
