|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 28 kDa |
Observed: 27 kDa
|Application Notes||Caspase-14 antibody can be used for the detection of caspase-14 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||Caspase-14 Antibody: MICE, mini-ICE, Caspase-14, Mini-ICE, CASP-14, caspase 14|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Caspase-14 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-14 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Non-apoptotic caspase which is involved in epidermal differentiation. Seems to play a role in keratinocyte differentiation and is required for cornification (PubMed:18156206). Regulates maturation of the epidermis by proteolytically processing filaggrin (PubMed:21654840). In vitro is equally active on the synthetic caspase substrates WEHD-ACF and IETD-AFC. Involved in processing of prosaposin in the epidermis (PubMed:24872419). May be involved in retinal pigment epithelium cell barrier function (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Embryo, adult liver and less in adult brain and kidney. Expressed in differentiating keratinocytes of embryonic skin (at protein level). Expressed in keratinocytes of adult skin suprabasal layers (at protein level)|

Caspase-14 Antibody: Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that can be divided into apoptotic and inflammatory caspase subfamilies. Unlike the apoptotic caspases, members of the inflammatory subfamily are generally not involved in cell death but are associated with the immune response to microbial pathogens. Members of this subfamily include caspase-1, -4, -5, and -12 and can activate proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1b and IL-18. Caspase-14 is highly expressed in embryonic but not adult tissues. It is processed and activated by caspase 8 and caspase 10 in vitro, and by anti-Fas agonist antibody or TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand in vivo. The expression and processing of this caspase may be involved in the keratinocyte terminal differentiation, which is important for the formation of the skin barrier.
