  • Western blot analysis of extract from 293, Hela and HT29 cells using Caspase8 Antibody
Immunogen Peptide sequence around aa.217~221 (S-E-S-Q-T) derived from Caspase 8.
Raised in Rabbit
Species Reactivity Human
Specificity The antibody detects endogenous level of total Caspase 8 protein.
Tested Applications ELISA,WB;WB:1:500-1:1000
Relevance Most upstream protease of the activation cascade of caspases responsible for the TNFRSF6/FAS mediated and TNFRSF1A induced cell death. Binding to the adapter molecule FADD recruits it to either receptor. The resulting aggregate called death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) performs CASP8 proteolytic activation. The active dimeric enzyme is then liberated from the DISC and free to activate downstream apoptotic proteases. Proteolytic fragments of the N-terminal propeptide (termed CAP3, CAP5 and CAP6) are likely retained in the DISC. Cleaves and activates CASP3, CASP4, CASP6, CASP7, CASP9 and CASP10. May participate in the GZMB apoptotic pathways. Cleaves ADPRT. Hydrolyzes the small-molecule substrate, Ac-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-|-AMC. Likely target for the cowpox virus CRMA death inhibitory protein. Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 lack the catalytic site and may interfere with the pro-apoptotic activity of the complex.

Involvement in disease Caspase-8 deficiency (CASP8D)
Subcellular Location Cytoplasm
Protein Families Peptidase C14A family
Tissue Specificity Isoform 1, isoform 5 and isoform 7 are expressed in a wide variety of tissues. Highest expression in peripheral blood leukocytes, spleen, thymus and liver. Barely detectable in brain, testis and skeletal muscle.
