Product Details


The Human Caspase 1 (Casp-1) ELISA Kit is suitable for quantitative detection of Casp-1 in serum, plasma, and tissue homogenates. Samples or standards are added into the microwells and bind to the anti-human Casp-1 antibody immobilized on the microplate. A sandwich is formed by the addition of the biotin-conjugated Casp-1 antibody. The TMB substrate solution is added that reacts with the enzyme-antibody-target complex to elicit a chromogenic reaction. The intensity of the solution color is directly proportional to the concentration of Casp-1 present in the original specimen. This kit has been verified with a wide detection range (12.5 pg/mL-800 pg/mL), high sensitivity, excellent specificity, precision less than 10%, good linearity, high recovery, and good consistency between lots. Refer to the product instructions for more verification details.

Casp-1 is synthesized as an inactive zymogen that is recruited and activated by inflammasomes. It plays a crucial role in cell immunity as an inflammatory response inhibitor. After activation by inflammasomes, Casp-1 initiates a pro-inflammatory response through the cleavage and subsequent activation of the two inflammatory cytokines, IL-1β and IL-18 as well as gasdermin D (GSDMD)-mediated pyroptosis, thus killing the infectious agent. In the absence of GSDMD, Casp-1 induces apoptosis involves the Bid-caspase-9-caspase-3 axis, which can elicit secondary necrosis/pyroptosis mediated by GSDME/DFNA5.

Target Data

Function Thiol protease that cleaves IL-1 beta between an Asp and an Ala, releasing the mature cytokine which is involved in a variety of inflammatory processes. Important for defense against pathogens. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). Can also promote apoptosis. Upon inflammasome activation, during DNA virus infection but not RNA virus challenge, controls antiviral immunity through the cleavage of CGAS, rendering it inactive
