Clonality of 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. Caspase-14 is weakly processed into p18 and p11 subunits by caspase-8. Caspase-14 may not play a role in apoptosis, but instead may regulate keratinocyte differentiation. Expression of caspase-14 may protect from psoriasis and irradiation damage. Caspase-14 may also be responsible for proteolytic processing of filaggrin during terminal differentiation of keratinocytes.
Concentration of antibody:
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.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by biovision antibodies-kits-proteins they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
