Name: Caspase 3 Polyclonal Antibody
Description and aplications: Caspase 3 is ubiquitously expressed and like other caspases is synthesized as an inactive (32kDa) proenzyme. Upon activation, Caspase 3 is cleaved at Asp28-Ser29 and Asp175-Ser176 thereby generating two subunits of 17kDa and 12kDa, respectively. Recent studies have implicated that Caspase 3 is associated with the induction of apoptosis. Activation of Caspase 3 occurs in response to variety of apoptotic inducers including Fas mediated apoptosis. This antibody detects both active and inactive forms of Caspase-3 protein. The antibody is useful for studying the phenomenon of cell death by apoptosis as a pathogenic mechanism of numerous pathologies: nerve damage, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, AIDS and malignancies.
