Caspase-2/ICH-1 is related to the C. elegans cell death gene product CED-3 and its mammalian homologue interleukin-1beta-converting enzyme (ICE). Caspase-2 /ICH-1 was identified from a mouse cDNA library and originally termed NEDD-2. The NEDD-2 mRNA was found to be expressed during early mouse embryonic brain development and subsequently down-regulated in adult neuronal tissue. With the identification of the human NEDD-2 gene, the murine gene was renamed Ich-1 to symbolize Ice and ced-3 homology. Caspase-2/ICH-1 mRNA is alternatively spliced. The larger mRNA species encoding a product of 435 amino acids is known as Caspase-2 long, or ICH-1L. The smaller mRNA species encoding a protein of 312 amino acids is named Caspase-2 short, or ICH-1S. Overexpression of ICH-1L induces apoptosis, while over-expression of Ich-1S suppresses Rat-1 cell death induced by serum deprivation. Thus, it appears that Caspase-2/ICH-1 plays an important dual role in programmed cell death.
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
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.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
