  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Caspase-9 Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for accurate quantitative measurement of Human Caspase-9 concentrations in cell lysate, cell culture supernatant and serum.

    Caspase-9 specific antibodies have been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and along with a Caspase-9 detection antibody and the microplate is then incubated at room temperature. Following washing a HRP conjugated anti-rabbit-IgG antibody is added to each well, incubated at room temperature then again washed. TMB is added and then catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the Caspase-9 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Research Areas
  • FunctionInvolved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. Binding of caspase-9 to Apaf-1 leads to activation of the protease which then cleaves and activates caspase-3. Proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP).
    Isoform 2 lacks activity is an dominant-negative inhibitor of caspase-9.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous, with highest expression in the heart, moderate expression in liver, skeletal muscle, and pancreas. Low levels in all other tissues. Within the heart, specifically expressed in myocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C14A family.
    Contains 1 CARD domain.
  • Developmental stageExpressed at low levels in fetal heart, at moderate levels in neonate heart, and at high levels in adult heart.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Cleavages at Asp-315 by granzyme B and at Asp-330 by caspase-3 generate the two active subunits. Caspase-8 and -10 can also be involved in these processing events.
