Target

  • FunctionInvolved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. At the onset of apoptosis it proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp-
    -Gly-217' bond. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) between the basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. Involved in the cleavage of huntingtin.
  • Tissue specificityHighly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney. Moderate levels in brain and skeletal muscle, and low in testis. Also found in many cell lines, highest expression in cells of the immune system.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C14A family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Cleavage by granzyme B, caspase-6, caspase-8 and caspase-10 generates the two active subunits. Additional processing of the propeptides is likely due to the autocatalytic activity of the activated protease. Active heterodimers between the small subunit of caspase-7 protease and the large subunit of caspase-3 also occur and vice versa.
    S-nitrosylated on its catalytic site cysteine in unstimulated human cell lines and denitrosylated upon activation of the Fas apoptotic pathway, associated with an increase in intracellular caspase activity. Fas therefore activates caspase-3 not only by inducing the cleavage of the caspase zymogen to its active subunits, but also by stimulating the denitrosylation of its active site thiol.

Thank you for your enquiry. Abcam presently offers about 10 antibodies against human caspase 3. On the datasheet, I found that ab408 reacts with the 32 kDa protein (inactive pro-enzyme form of Caspase 3) from HL60 and U932 cells. Both ab4104 and a...

Thank you for the nice feedback! Ab408 was initially not characterized for application in IHC-frozen sections, and yours is the first news that we have received. I suggest that you submits a review regarding your experience with ab408, and in retur...

This antibody has not been tested on frozen sections, however it does work on paraffin embedded sections.

Yes, we have reports from customers that this antibody reacts with p12.

This antibody recognises the mouse Caspase 3.

Both our caspase-3 antibodies have been tested in immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections, but not on cryosections.

The ability of this antibody to recognise non-mammalian caspases has not yet been tested.
