Introduction

Caspase 2 Apoptosis-Related Cysteine Peptidase (CASP2) is a part of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. CASP2 takes part in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. CASP2 is also responsible for inactivating proteins essential for cell survival. The proteolytic cleavage of CASP2 is induced by a variety of apoptotic stimuli.

Description

CASP2 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 126 amino acids (348-452) and having a molecular mass of 14.1kDa.
CASP2 is fused to a 21 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

The CASP2 solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.4M Urea and 10% glycerol.

Stability

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
