Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Specificity / Sensitivity
Caspase-5 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total caspase-5 protein. This antibody detects the p20 subunit of active caspase-5.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Leu130 within the p20 subunit of human caspase-5 protein. Antibodies were purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from THP-1, HT-1080 and Ramos cells using Caspase-5 Antibody.
Western blot analysis of extracts from recombinant, active caspase-1, -4, and -5 using Caspase-5 Antibody.
Western blot analysis of extracts from THP-1 cells, differentiated with TPA (12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13-Acetate) #4174 (80 nM, overnight) followed by LPS (1 μg/ml) for the indicated times, using Caspase-5 Antibody.
Caspase-5 (Ich-3/ICErelIII/TY) is a member of the caspase family of cysteine proteases that play a key role in the execution of apoptosis and activation of inflammatory cytokines (1-3). Caspase-5 is widely expressed, with highest expression observed in placenta and lung (1). Interferon-γ and LPS regulate expression of caspase-5 (2,4). Members of the caspase-1 subfamily of caspases, which includes caspase-4, -5, and murine caspase-11 and -12, can induce apoptosis when over-expressed and mediate the proteolytic activation of inflammatory cytokines (5). Processing of IL-1β occurs through the activation of an inflammasome complex consisting of caspase-1, caspase-5, Pycard and NALP1 (6). Transcription factor Max, a component of the Myc/Mad/Max network, is cleaved by caspase-5 during Fas-induced apoptosis (7). Several alternative spliced variants of caspase-5 have been identified (8). Frameshift mutations of caspase-5 have been observed in leukemia, lymphoma (9), and colorectal cancers (10).
