|Product name||Caspase-2 Assay Kit (Colorimetric)|
|Applications notes||Caspase 2 Assay Kit (Colorimetric) is based on the hydrolysis of the peptide substrate Ac-VDQQD-pNA (acetyl-Val-Asp-Gln-Gln-Asp p-nitroanilide) by caspase 2, resulting in the release of the p-nitroaniline (pNA), which can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at at 405 nm.|

|Background||Caspase family of cysteine proteases has been shown to play a key role in apoptosis. Mammalian caspases can be subdivided into three functional groups: initiator caspases (Caspase 2, 8, 9 and 10), executioner caspases (Caspase-3, 6 and 7), and inflammatory caspases (Caspase 1, 4, 5, 11 and 12). Caspase 2 belongs to a family of cysteine proteases that cleave proteins only at an amino acid following an aspartic acid residue. Within this family, caspase 2 is part of the Ich-1 subfamily, one of the most conserved caspases in different species of animal. It has a similar amino acid sequence to initiator caspases, including caspase 1, caspase 4, caspase 5, and caspase 9. It is produced as a zymogen, which contains a long pro-domain that is similar to that of caspase 9 and contains a protein interaction domain known as a CARD domain. Pro-caspase-2 contains two subunits, p19 and p12.|

1.The species of antibody reactivity should be the sample species that can be matched normally after Abbkine R&D experts have passed strict scientific verification. If your sample is not within the range of reactivity, in order to improve the efficiency and results of your experiment, it is not suggested to try other species. Otherwise, it may lead to sample mismatch and affect the effect of your experiment.
2.Please aliquot the antibody received as soon as possible and store it at -20℃, avoid repeated freezing and thawing, and use it within one year.
