Rabbit anti caspase-4 (N-terminal) antibody recognizes an epitope within the N-terminal region (NT) of Caspase-4, otherwise known as ICH-2. Caspase-4, a member of the Caspase-1 subfamily of cysteine proteases, exists as an inactive pro-enzyme which undergoes proteolytic cleavage of its p30 precursor form, into smaller p20 and p10 subunits.

The cellular localization of Caspase-4 on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane, has resulted in this protein becoming a focus of studies in which dysfunction or stress to the ER membrane is implicated, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Ischemia and confirms the involvement of Caspase-4 as an instigator of cellular apoptosis.
