Product Description

Caspase-3 Control Cell Extracts (Jurkat Untreated): Untreated Jurkat cells are lysed in Chaps cell extract buffer and a cytoplasmic fraction is generated to serve as a negative control for caspase cleavage. Supplied in SDS sample buffer.

Caspase-3 Control Cell Extracts (Jurkat +Cytochrome c): Untreated Jurkat cells are lysed in Chaps cell extract buffer and a cytoplasmic fraction is generated. Extracts are treated with cytochrome c in vitro to generate a positive control for caspase cleavage. Supplied in SDS sample buffer.


Caspase-3 (CPP-32, Apopain, Yama, SCA-1) is a critical executioner of apoptosis, as it is either partially or totally responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many key proteins, such as the nuclear enzyme poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) (1). Activation of caspase-3 requires proteolytic processing of its inactive zymogen into activated p17 and p12 fragments. Cleavage of caspase-3 requires the aspartic acid residue at the P1 position (2).
