Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
CASP12 , CASP12P1
Three distinct signaling pathways lead to programmed cell death (apoptosis). The death receptor and mitochondrion pathways are the mains two pathways, in which the key apoptotic proteases caspase-8 and caspase-9, respectively, are involved. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is the third apoptotic pathway and caspase-12 is involved. Caspase-12 is located to the ER, but not to the cytoplasm or mitochondrion. Caspase-12 is activated by ER stress, including disruption of ER calcium hemeostasis, and mediates ER stress-induced apoptosis. Caspase-12 is localized to the ER with several proteins that are involved in Alzheimer’s disease including gamma-secretase presenilin and β-amyloid precursor protein (APP). Caspase-12 mediates cytotoxicity induced by amyloid-β. Caspase-12 is ubiquitously expressed in mouse tissues.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding amino acid 310 of mouse caspase-12
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-caspase-12 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). It detects procaspase-12 (55 kDa) and cleavage caspase-12 (36 kDa) on SDS-PAGE immunoblots. However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Human and some mouse caspases are active in apoptosis and cell death and even in necrosis and inflammation. CASP Gene and orthologous enzymes have been identifies successfully in the signal transduction cascade and pathways.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
