  • FunctionInvolved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. Cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in vitro, as well as lamins. Overexpression promotes programmed cell death.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C14A family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Cleavages by caspase-3, caspase-8 or -10 generate the two active subunits.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm.

Thank you for contacting us.

I can confirm that the Caspase 6 protein (Active) (ab52157) is a tetramer with subunits 18kDa and 11kDa. On the reducing gel, you will see two bands.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do no...
