Mouse anti Human caspase-3 antibody recognizes caspase-3, also known as CASP-3, CPP-32, PARP cleavage protease, SREBP cleavage activity 1 and protein Yama (protein of death).

Encoded by the CASP3 gene, caspase-3 is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in apoptosis or programmed cell death. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. Caspase-3 cleaves and activates caspases 6, 7 and 9, and the protein itself is processed by caspases 8, 9 and 10. It is the predominant caspase involved in the cleavage of amyloid-beta 4A precursor protein, which is associated with neuronal death in Alzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing of CASP3 results in two transcript variants that encode the same protein (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).

Mouse anti Human caspase-3 antibody detects a band of 32 kDa corresponding to the full-length active protein. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
