Anti-CASP5 Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody
Caspases are a family of cytosolic aspartate-specific cysteine proteases involved in the initiation and execution of apoptosis. Caspase-5 (ICH-3, ICEREL-III, TY protease) is a member of the caspase-1 subfamily and it is an upstream mediator of apoptosis. Caspase-5 is highly expressed in lung, liver, and skeletal muscle, and similar to Caspase-4, its overexpression can induce cellular apoptosis . A tetramer, Caspase-5 separates into two subunits of a 20kda (p20) and 10kda (p10) after activation. In vitro, Caspase-5 can be cleaved by GranB, a major player in Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) induced apoptosis . In vivo, the Caspase-5 expression is elevated by LPS and IFNg. Caspase-5 induced apoptosis can be inhibited by CrmA and Bcl-2. Caspase-5 has also been implicated in cellular inflammatory response and in the microsatellite mutator pathway for cancer .
