      Background InformationCaspase-3 (CPP32, Apopain) is the most extensively studied apoptotic protein. Caspase-3 is synthesized as an inactive proenzyme (32 kDa) that is processed in cells undergoing apoptosis by self-proteolysis and/or cleavage by another upstream protease. The processed form of caspase-3 consists of large (17 kDa) and small (12 kDa) subunits which associate to form an active enzyme. The active caspase-3 proteolytically cleaves and activates other caspases, as well as relevant targets in the cells such as PARP and DFF.

      ApplicationAnti-Caspase 3 Antibody, active (cleaved) form detects level of Caspase 3 and has been published and validated for use in Immunofluorescence (IF), Immunohistochemistry (IHC), and Western Blot (WB).
      Key Applications
      • Immunofluorescence
      • Immunohistochemistry
      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesWestern Blot Analysis:
      1:100-1:200 (0.5-4 µg/mL) dilution of active apoptotic cells we used to detect Caspase-3.
      Note when using tissue, levels of active caspase 3 can below detectable levels. Use CC119 (human caspase 3) incubated 30 minutes with 1 mM ATP (for activation) as a positive control on westerns. Alternatively, neuronal culture preparations incubated with staurosporine (0.5 µM, 10-18 hr) typically give a strong caspase 3 signal.

      1:10 dilution (10-20 µg/mL), AB3623 has reacted successfully in 4% PFA fixed, paraffin embedded tissues mouse tissues.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes a protein which is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. This protein cleaves and activates caspases 6, 7 and 9, and the protein itself is processed by caspases 8, 9 and 10. It is the predominant caspase involved in the cleavage of amyloid-beta 4A precursor protein, which is associated with neuronal death in Alzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants that encode the same protein.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P42574 # Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. At the onset of apoptosis it proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp- -Gly-217' bond. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) between the basic helix-loop- helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. Involved in the cleavage of huntingtin.
      SIZE: 277 amino acids; 31608 Da
      SUBUNIT: Heterotetramer that consists of two anti-parallel arranged heterodimers, each one formed by a 17 kDa (p17) and a 12 kDa (p12) subunit.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Highly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney. Moderate levels in brain and skeletal muscle, and low in testis. Also found in many cell lines, highest expression in cells of the immune system.
      PTM: Cleavage by granzyme B, caspase-6, caspase-8 and caspase-10 generates the two active subunits. Additional processing of the propeptides is likely due to the autocatalytic activity of the activated protease. Active heterodimers between the small subunit of caspase-7 protease and the large subunit of caspase-3 also occur and vice versa.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P42574 ## Belongs to the peptidase C14 family.
