Immunogen A synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminus of rat Caspase-2 protein conjugated to Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) through a cysteine residue linker.
Sequence M-A-A-S-S-G-R-S-Q-S-S-L-H-R-K-G-L-C-KLH
Specificity This affinity purified antibody is directed against rat and mouse caspase-2. The antibody detects long and short forms of the protein. Antiserum was purified against the immunizing peptide. This antibody reacts with mouse and rat caspase-2, but not caspase-2 from human sources. Cross reactivity with caspase-2 from other sources has not been determined. Rat and mouse caspase-2 show 94 % homology. There is no significant homology to the human form.
Purification Immunoaffinity chromatography.
Alternative Name Caspase-2 (CASP2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Apoptosis occurs during normal cellular development and involves dramatic changes in cellular structure. Disruption of apoptosis may contribute to cancer and other diseases. Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis. Caspase-2 has been called ICH-1 in human, CED-3 in C.elegans and NEDD-2 in mouse. Caspase-2 is synthesized as an inactive precursor that is processed in cells undergoing apoptosis. The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a pro-domain, and large and small catalytic subunits. The active forms of caspases are generated by several stimuli, including ligand-receptor interactions, growth factor deprivation and inhibitors of cellular functions. Caspase-2 is activated in vitro by caspase-1, caspase-3 and granzyme B. Caspase-2 functions as an upstream apoptosis initiator that participates in the activation of downstream caspases, such as caspase-3, caspase-6 and caspase-7. Caspase-2 is highly expressed in embryonic mouse brain but not in adult neural tissue. Alternative mRNA splicing produces a long (48 kDa) and short (35 kDa) form of caspase-2. These forms show tissue specificity and function either as inducers or suppressors of apoptosis. Mature caspase-2 is 435 amino acids in length cleaved (~50 kDa) and is cleaved upon activation into 10 and 20 kDa subunits.Synonyms: CASP-2, CASP2, ICH-1 protease, ICH1, NEDD2, Neural precursor cell expressed developmentally down-regulated protein 2

Application Notes This product was assayed against 1.0 g of immunizing peptide in a standard sandwichELISA using HRP conjugated Affinity Purified anti-Rabbit IgG [H&L] (Goat) and TMB as asubstrate for 30 minutes at room temperature. A working dilution of 1: 2,000 to 1: 10,000 issuggested for this product. This affinity purified polyclonal antibody was tested by immunoblotting and was found tobe reactive with 48 kDa mouse and rat caspase-2. A control and rat caspase-2 transfected human 293 cell lysate was used to show by
