|W IP IF-IC F||M||Endogenous||18, 43||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: M=Mouse
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Cleaved Caspase-8 (Asp387) (D5B2) XP® Rabbit mAb (Mouse Specific) recognizes endogenous levels of mouse caspase-8 only when cleaved at Asp387. In addition to the p18 subunit, this antibody also detects cleavage products containing the pro-domain with the p18 subunit (p43).
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp387 of mouse caspase-8 protein.

Apoptosis induced through the CD95 receptor (Fas/APO-1) and tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) activates caspase-8 and leads to the release of the caspase-8 active fragments, p18 and p10 (1-3). Activated caspase-8 cleaves and activates downstream effector caspases such as caspase-1, -3, -6, and -7. Caspase-3 ultimately elicits the morphological hallmarks of apoptosis, including DNA fragmentation and cell shrinkage.
