Caspase-14 Antibody: Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that can be divided into apoptotic and inflammatory caspase subfamilies. Unlike the apoptotic caspases, members of the inflammatory subfamily are generally not involved in cell death but are associated with the immune response to microbial pathogens. Members of this subfamily include caspase-1, -4, -5, and -12 and can activate proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1b and IL-18. Caspase-14 is highly expressed in embryonic but not adult tissues. It is processed and activated by caspase 8 and caspase 10 in vitro, and by anti-Fas agonist antibody or TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand in vivo. The expression and processing of this caspase may be involved in the keratinocyte terminal differentiation, which is important for the formation of the skin barrier.

Caspase-14 Antibody is affinity chromatography purified via peptide column.
Ab raised in
Caspase-14 antibody was made against a 16 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human caspase-14.
ELISA, Western Blot, immuno-histo-chemistry
Caspase-14 antibody can be used for the detection of caspase-14 by Western blot at 1 ug/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 ug/mL.
Suspention, pH, azide
Caspase-14 Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.
Caspase-14 antibody can be stored at 4 grades C for three months and -20 grades C, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Human and some mouse caspases are active in apoptosis and cell death and even in necrosis and inflammation. CASP Gene and orthologous enzymes have been identifies successfully in the signal transduction cascade and pathways.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by proscience they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
