Immunogen A synthetic peptide sequence corresponding to amino acids 250-264 of human caspase-6
Purification Affinity Purified
Alternative Name Caspase-6
Background Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis. The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a prodomain, 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. All known caspases require cleavage adjacent to aspartates to liberate one large and one small subunit, which associate into a2b2 tetramer to form the active enzyme. Caspase-6 encodes a 34-kD protein that is highly homologous to Caspase-1, -2 and -3. Two transcripts of 1.7-kb (Mch2a/Caspase6) and 1.4-kb (Mch2b) transcripts are expressed in Jurkat lymphocytes and other cell lines possibly due to alternate splicing.
UniProt P55212
Research Area Apoptosis/Necrosis
Application Notes Western blot: 2.0 - 4.0 ug/ml. This antibody recognizes both the 34 kD alpha isoform and the 22 kD beta isoform of caspase-6. Recommended Positive Control: rat brain or Jurkat. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C
Storage Comment Store the antibody at 2-8 °C for one month or at -20 °C for longer. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Shelf Life: one year from despatch.
Expiry Date 12 months

anti-Caspase 6, Apoptosis-Related Cysteine Peptidase (CASP6) (AA 250-264) antibody Western blot analysis for human Caspase-6 using Jurkat cell lysate (lane A) or rat brain cell lysate (lane B) with ABIN123491 at 2 ug/ml. This antibody detects both 34 kDa (lane A) and 22 kDa (lane B) caspase-6 corresponding to the alpha and beta isoforms, respectively. Due to expression level, both isoforms may not be present in each sample tested.
