The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 mg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 35 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa).
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionInvolved 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 specificityHighly expressed in lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen and heart, and moderately in testis. No expression in the brain.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C14A family.
  • Post-translational
    Cleavages by granzyme B or caspase-10 generate the two active subunits. Propeptide domains can also be cleaved efficiently by caspase-3. Active heterodimers between the small subunit of caspase-7 and the large subunit of caspase-3, and vice versa, also occur.

    Goat polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG - H&L (HRP), pre-adsorbed at 1/5000 dilution
    developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 34 kDa
    Observed band size : 35 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 17 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 3 minutes

    We hypothesize that the 15 kDa band represents the cleaved subunit (P11) of Caspase-7. Abcam welcomes customer feedback.

  • ICC/IF image of ab92845 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab92842, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1:1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1:200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% PFA fixed (10 min) MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
