Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Monkey.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Caspase-14 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total caspase-14 protein and the p11 subunit of mature caspase-14.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human caspase-14 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from mouse and rat skin using Caspase-14 Antibody.
Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that play an essential role in carrying out apoptosis. Caspase-14, also named MICE, is a unique member of the caspase family with restricted expression; it is found in embryonic tissues and adult skin (1,2). Caspase-14 is weakly processed into p18 and p11 subunits by caspase-8 (2). Caspase-14 may not play a role in apoptosis (2), but instead may regulate keratinocyte differentiation (3). Expression of caspase-14 may protect from psoriasis (4,5) and irradiation damage (6). Caspase-14 may also be responsible for proteolytic processing of filaggrin during terminal differentiation of keratinocytes (6).
