This product detects a band of approximately 48 kDa in Ramos cell lysates. (Predicted precursor MWT 47.8kDa)

Specificity

This product recognizes an epitope located within the internal region of human Caspase-5, a 47kDa cysteine protease, otherwise known as ICH-3. Caspase-5 has been shown to be expressed at higher levels in the colon, lung, spleen, small intestine and by peripheral blood lymphocytes.

Caspase-5 is a member of a growing number of inflammatory caspases belonging to the Caspase-1 (ICE-type) subfamily, which require proteolytic processing of their inactive precursor into smaller active subunits. Unlike Caspase-1, Caspase-5 is not directly responsible for the activation of IL-1Beta from the pro-IL-1Beta precursor, but the presence of Caspase-5 does appear to enhance the processing of IL-1Beta.

The in vivo expression of Caspase-5 is elevated by Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and gene expression is also increased by Interferon gamma (IFNg). In vitro studies have shown cleavage of Caspase-5 by the serine protease Granzyme B, which plays a major role in Cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL)-induced apoptosis, see Wang, S. et al. for details.

Storage/Stability

Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.

This product should be stored undiluted.

Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
