Long descriptionCaspase-6 (Cysteine-Requiring Aspartate Proteases) is part of a family of intracellular cysteine proteases that cleave their substrates after aspartic acid residues. These proteases play an integral role in inducing apoptosis in cells. Procaspase-6 (Mch2), a member of the ICE/ced-3 subfamily, is an inactive proenzyme that is activated to form caspase-6 by proteolytic cleavage at certain aspartic acid residues. During cleavage, the N-terminal is removed and the proenzyme is converted into a large (p18) and small (p11) subunits. _x000B__x000B_Caspase-6 has two isoforms, and , produced by alternative splicing. Over-expression of the isoform of caspase-6 without its prodomain can induce apoptosis. The isoform does not seem to display proteolytic activity. Together with caspases-3 and -7, the isoform of caspase-6 is classified as an effector/execution caspase. Caspase-3, caspase-8 and caspase-10 can cleave procaspase-6. Active caspase-6 cleaves several other proteins such as lamins, NuMa and Keratin 18. A possible cleavage of caspases-8 and -10 in cytochrome-C dependent apoptosis was reported recently.

DescriptionThis 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.
TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
