Target

  • Relevance
    Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis. The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a prodomain, and large and small catalytic subunits. The active forms of caspases are generated by several stimuli including ligand-receptor interactions, growth factor deprivation and inhibitors of cellular functions. All known caspases require cleavage adjacent to aspartates to liberate one large and one small subunit, which associate into a2b2 tetramer to form the active enzyme. Gene for Caspase 3 also known as Yama, CPP32, and apopain codes for a 32-kDa protein. Caspase 3 cleaves the death substrate poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) to a specific 85 kDa form observed during apoptosis and is inhibitable by the CrmA protein. Other Caspase 3 substrates include DNA-PK, actin, GAS2, and procaspase-6, etc. Caspase 3 is activated by cleavage events at Asp-28/Ser-29 (between N-terminal pro-domain) and Asp-175/Ser-176 (between large and small subunits) to generate a large subunit of 17-kDa and a small subunit of 12-kDa.

Images

  • This WB data was generated using the same anti-pro Caspase 3 antibody clone, E61, in a different buffer formulation (ab32150).

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate
    Lane 2: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate + Staurosporine (1μM for 4h)
    Lane 3: Caspase-3 knockout HAP1 cell lysate
    Lane 4: Caspase-3 knockout HAP1 cell lysate + Staurosporine (1μM for 4h)
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab32150 observed at 35 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab32150 was shown to specifically react with pro Caspase 3 when Caspase 3 knockout samples were used. Wild-type and Caspase 3 knockout samples (± Staurosporine treatment) were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab32150 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted to 1/1000 and 1/10000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
