||Recombinant Human CASP5 was produced inE. coli.
||Caspase 5 is an enzyme that proteolytically cleaves other proteins at an aspartic acid residue, and belongs to a family of cysteine proteases called caspases. It is an inflammatory caspase, along with caspase 1, caspase 4 and the murine caspase 4 homolog caspase 11, and has a role in the immune system.
||Reconstitute to 1U/µl with PBS containing 15% glycerol.
||~5"000U/mg protein. One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that cleaves 1nmol of the caspase substrate WEHD-pNA per hour at 37°C in a reaction solution containing 50mM HEPES, pH 7.2, 50mM NaCl, 0.1% CHAPS, 10mM EDTA, 5% glycerol and 10mM DTT.
||In combination with caspase-5 activity assays, the enzyme is useful in screening caspase inhibitors, studying enzyme regulation and kinetics, determining target substrate or as a positive control in caspase-5 activity assays. We recommend using 1 unit per assay for analyzing caspase activity.
||Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. After reconstitution, prepare aliquots and store at -80°C.
