Caspase 9 Apoptosis Extract(PDF)

Product Number Amount/Size Price
#E0009 10 Western Blots $90/set


Total cell lysates isolated from Jurkat human T cells were treated with vehicle (-) or Actinomycin D (+AD) and lysed in CHAPS Cell extract buffer (#B0001). These treatments induce the apoptotic activation of procaspase-9 to the cleaved and active form of caspase 9 and serve as molecular weight controls for Western blot analysis.


Provided as a lyophilized sample. Resuspend each of the (+) and (-) caspase 9 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 9 Apoptosis Extract Caspase-9 (MCH6, APAF3, ICE-LAP6) is a critical initiator caspase of the apoptotic pathway, which is activated after the triggered mitochondria releases cytochrome c. Caspase-9 is activated by cleaving the ~47kDa inactive zymogen into 35kDa and 17kDa active subunits and occurs following aspartate residues (1-3).
