Caspase 3 Apoptosis Extract(PDF)

Product Number Amount/Size Price
#E0003 10 Western Blots $90/set


Total cell lysates collected from Jurkat cells (human lymphoma T cell line) were treated with vehicle (-AD) or Actinomycin D (+AD) and lysed in CHAPS Cell extract buffer (B0001). This treatment induces the apoptotic activation of caspase 3 to the cleaved and active form and serve as molecular weight controls for Western blot analysis.


Provided as a lyophilized sample. Resuspend each of the (+) and (-) Caspase 3 control extracts in 100ul of 1X Laemmli Reducing Sample Buffer. Distribute and label each of the (+) and (-) samples into 10ul aliquots and store at -20C.


10ul/well Western Blot; Load 10ul of positive and 10ul of negative control and lysates per lane. To use: heat a 10ul of positive and 10ul of negative aliquot at 95C for 3 minutes and load on a Std SDS-PAGE gel.


Caspase 3 Apoptosis Extract Caspase-3 is a critical effector caspase of the apoptotic pathway, which is activated after being cleaved by initiator caspases (1,2). Caspase-3 is activated by cleaving the 35kDa inactive zymogen into 17/19kDa active units.

Storage Conditions

Store at -20ÂșC. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
