||Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 41-56 of human caspase-9 (Duan et al. 1996; Srinivasula et al. 1996; Nijhawan et al. 1997). Recognizes proform (46 kDa); sequence analysis predicts cross-reactivity with mouse caspase-9 (>90%).
||Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain containing adapter molecules and members of the caspase family of proteases. A novel member in the caspase family was recently identified and designated ICE-LAP6, Mch6, and Apaf-3 (Duan et al. 1996; Srinivasula et al. 1996; Nijhawan et al. 1997). Caspase-9 and Apaf-1 bind to each other, which leads to caspase-9 activation (Nijhawan et al. 1997). Caspase-9 is also activated by granzyme B and CPP32 (Duan et al. 1996; Srinivasula et al. 1996). Activated caspase-9 cleaves and activates caspase-3 that is one of the key proteases, being responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many key proteins in apoptosis (Nijhawan et al. 1997). Caspase-9 plays a central role in cell death induced by a wide variety of apoptosis inducers including TNF-alpha, TRAIL, anti-CD-95, FADD, and TRADD (Pan et al. 1998). Caspase-9 is expressed in a variety of human tissues (Duan et al. 1996; Srinivasula et al. 1996).
