Total cell lysate of HL-60 (lane 1, 15 µg), HT-29 (lane 2, 15 µg), and mouse thymus (lane 3, 15 µg) were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with purified monoclonal anti-ASC (clone O93E9) antibody. Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection.

Description

Apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a CARD (ASC), also known as target of methylation-mediated silencing (TMS1), PYD, and CARD domain containing protein (PYCARD), is a 21.6 kD pro-apoptotic protein that contains a N-terminal pyrin domain (PYD) and a C-terminal caspase recruitment domain (CARD). The TMS1 gene was originally found to be aberrantly methylated and silenced in various cancer cells. Expression of ASC can be induced by pro-apoptotic/inflammatory stimuli. In normal cells, this protein is localized to the cytoplasm. However, in cells undergoing apoptosis, it forms ball-like aggregates near the nuclear periphery. During apoptosis, ASC translocates from the cytosol to the mitochondria and associates with mitochondrial Bax to trigger cytochrome c release and subsequent apoptosis. The adaptor molecule ASC mediates AIM2-dependent caspase-1 activation. Also, the AIM2/ASC complex can act as a novel caspase-8 activation platform. Recent studes has shown that ASC reduces the phosphorylation of IKKα/β phosphorylation and inhibits NF-κB activity in primary melanoma. However, in metastatic melanoma through, it has the opposite function enhancing NF-κB activity and the secretion of IL-1β.

Antigen Details

Structure
Full-length ASC (fASC) contains 195 amino acids wtih a predicted molecular weight of 21.6 kD. The sequence of isoform ASC-b is missing 93-111 a.a. The sequence of isoform ASC-c is missing 26-85 a.a.
Distribution

Cytoplasm. In resting monocytes and macrophages, the nucleus is the primary localization.

Function
ASC promotes caspase-mediated apoptosis. This pro-apoptotic activity is mediated predominantly through the activation of caspase-9. ASC is an integral component of the inflammasome. Within the inflammasome, ASC links caspase-1 and NOD-like receptors (NLR), which lead to the activation of caspase-1.
Ligand/Receptor
CIAS1/PYPAF1 and PYDC1.
Cell Type
Dendritic cells
Biology Area
Angiogenesis, Cell Biology, Immunology, Innate Immunity, Neuroscience, Signal Transduction
