Caspase-7 is a member of a family of cysteine proteases which play a critical role in the induction of apoptosis. Caspase-7 is structurally and functionally most similar to caspase-3. These proteases are expressed as proenzymes which are processed into large and small subunits that associate to form the active enzyme. Caspase-7 may also exist as alternative splice forms, i.e., Mch3alpha and Mch3beta. A novel interaction between Mch3alpha and the 17 kDa subunit of caspase-3 has been demonstrated in vitro, producing a heteromeric enzyme which is proteolytically active. Active caspase-7 can move to the mitochondrial fraction of cells undergoing Fas-mediated apoptosis, whereas active caspase-3 is primarily cytosolic. Caspase-7 is activated by caspase-31 and by granzyme B. Active caspase-7 can cleave the nuclear substrate PARP1 as well as the sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1 (SREBP-1). Caspase-7 migrates at a molecular weight of 35 kDa in SDS/PAGE. Clone B94-1 recognizes the 35 kDa and 17 kDa form human caspase-7. The specificity of the antibody was verified by immunoprecipitation and western blot analysis of active, recombinant human caspase-7 and of endogenous caspase-7 in cell lysates. A synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 25-42 of human caspase-7 was used as immunogen.
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

|Application Notes||This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis (0.5-1.0 µg/ml). Other applications not routinely tested include immunoprecipitation (1-2 µg/1 x 10^6 cells). 293 embryonic kidney (ATCC CRL-1673) are recommended as a positive control. Jurkat T cell leukemia (ATCC TIB-152) and Daudi Burkitt lymphoma (ATCC CCL-213) cell lines may also be used for these applications.|
