Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. Western blotting, suggested working dilution(s): Use 1-2µg antibody per ml antibody dilution buffer for each mini-gel. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
Caspase -1 plays a vital role in cleaving the inactive procytokine pro-IL-1 beta to generate the active 17 kd mature form of IL-1beta, a key mediator of inflammation. Active caspase-1 (ICE) is derived a single proenzyme of 45 Kd. An active ICE comprises two subunits of P20 and two subunits of P10 after removal a large amino-terminal pro-domain and a small linker peptide. Caspase-1 is reported to be involved in CD95- mediated apoptosis. Four alternatively spliced variants of caspase-1 have been reported, with mw ranging from 30-48 kd.
The whole length of Caspase-1 is a 404 amino acid polypeptide chain with MW of 45kd. The active Caspase -1 is a tetramer compariseing two subunits of 20Kd and 10Kd.
Predominantly in the cytoplasm, some localized to the external cell membrane.
Caspase-1 is a mediator of the inflammatory response by cleaving the inactive pro-IL1 beta at Asp116/Ala 117 to generate the active 17k mature form of IL-1 beta.
