  • Function

    Involved 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 specificity

    Highly expressed in lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen and heart, and moderately in testis. No expression in the brain.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs 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.

    Lanes 1 - 6: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab201959 observed at 38,20 kDa. Red - loading control, ab176560, observed at 50 kDa.

    ab201959 was shown to specifically react with HAP1 + Staurosporin when HAP1 + Staurosporin knockout samples were used. Wild-type and HAP1 + Staurosporin knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab201959 and ab176560 (Rabbit anti alpha Tubulin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1000 dilution and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
