Alternative Name ICAD
Background Apoptosis is essential in maintaining normal cellular homeostasis and for animal development. Morphological as well as biochemical changes are a hallmark of apoptosis and include membrane blebbing, chromosomal condensation and DNA fragmentation. These changes are caused by a class of cysteine proteases called caspases, which, upon activation can cleave multiple cytoplasmic and nuclear substrates. Caspases, once activated by a proapoptotic signal can induce a DNase, designated DFF/CAD to cleave these nuclear substrates. In growing, non-apoptotic cells DFF/CAD is complexed with its inhibitor, ICAD. Activation of caspase-3 causes the cleavage of ICAD, releasing CAD to cleave chromosomal DNA. ICAD has a molecular weight of approximately ~45 kDa in SDS-PAGE. The antibody recognizes the full length and cleaved form (~18 kDa) of mouse ICAD. A peptide corresponding to amino acids 312 to 331 of mouse ICAD was used as immunogen.
Molecular Weight 45 kDa
Application Notes Applications include western blot analysis (1:1000-1:4000). Mouse lung lysate is recommended as a positive control.
