|Other Accession||P55210, 1730092|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||34277 Da|
|Application Notes||Casp-7 antibody can be used for the detection of Caspase-7 by Western blot at 0.5 to 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||Caspase-7 Antibody: MCH3, CMH-1, LICE2, CASP-7, ICE-LAP3, MCH3, Caspase-7, Apoptotic protease Mch-3, caspase 7, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase|
|Target/Specificity||CASP7; Depending on cell lines or tissues used, other cleavage products may be observed.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Caspase-7 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-7 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. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). Proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp-|-Gly- 217' bond. Overexpression promotes programmed cell death.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen and heart, and moderately in testis. No expression in the brain|

Caspase-7 Antibody: Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that can be divided into the 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. The apoptotic subfamily can be further divided into initiator caspases, which are activated in response to death signals, and executioner caspases, which are activated by the initiator caspases and are responsible for cleavage of cellular substrates that ultimately lead to cell death. Caspase-7 is an executioner caspase that was identified based on its homology with caspases 1 and 3, as well as the C. elegans cell death protein CED-3. Alternative splicing of Caspase-7 mRNA results in the production of 3 distinct isoforms. Caspase-7 activity can be directly inhibited by XIAP expression.
