Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate + Staurosporine (ab146588) (1μM for 4h)
Lane 2: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate
Lane 3: Caspase-3 knockout HAP1 cell lysate + Staurosporine (ab146588) (1μM for 4h)
Lane 4: Caspase-3 knockout HAP1 cell lysate
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab13847 observed at 17 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
ab13847 was shown to recognise Caspase 3 when Caspase 3 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and Caspase 3 knockout samples (±staurosporine treatment) were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab13847 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted to 1/500 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.
IHC-P image of Caspase 3 staining with ab13847 on tissue sections from juvenile marmoset testis. The sections were subjected to heat-mediated antigen retrieval using Dako antigen retrieval solution. The sections were then blocked with 5% milk for 30 minutes at 25°C, before incubation with ab13847 (1/100 dilution) for 18 hours at 4°C. The secondary was an Alexa-Fluor 555 conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/500 dilution.
ab13847 staining active caspase 3 in Human Jurkat cells by Flow Cytometry. Cells were prepared in a phosphate buffered solution containing 0.1% sodium azide with FBS fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with Triton X-100 and NP40. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (1/100 in wash buffer) for 24 hours at 4°C. A FITC-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit Ig (1/100) was used as the secondary antibody.

5μm frozen sections of tumor tissue were fixed with 100% ice cold methanol for 10 minutes, then blocked in 5% normal goat serum in PBS (pH 7.4) for 1h. Sections were incubated with ab13847 (1:500) at 4°C overnight and for 1h with secondary antibodies at room temperature.
Caspase 3 exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce large (17kDa) and small (12kDa) subunits. These subunits dimerize to form the active enzyme. ab13847 specifically detects the large active subunit (17kDa) and the inactive pro Caspase 3 (32 kDa).
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab13847 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
Secondary antibody - Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) secondary antibody
HeLa cells were fixed for 10 minutes at room temperature in 3.7% PFA and permeabilised in 0.1% Triton X-100/PBS then incubated with ab13847 (5µg/ml) for 1 hour at room temperature. The top panel shows control cells treated with DMSO. The bottom panel shows HeLa cells treated with 1 mM staurosporine (ab146588) for 4 hours to induce caspase-3 activation. ab13847 staining is shown in green and counterstaining with DAPI is shown in blue. 100x magnification.
The image shows the staining with ab13847 is very faint in the untreated control cultures, but very bright after activation of capsase-3 by treatment with the staurosporine . (N.B. in these cultures the nuclei are apoptotic).
