Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat Caspase‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line, NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and Rat‑2 rat embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Caspase‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6215) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Caspase‑1 at approximately 45 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.
Caspase‑1 in THP‑1 Human Cell Line. Caspase‑1 was detected in immersion fixed THP‑1 human acute monocytic leukemia cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Caspase‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6215) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Caspase-1, also known as IL-1 beta -converting enzyme (ICE), is an aspartic protease that plays a key role in the inflammatory response and apoptosis. Caspase-1 precursor (about 50kDa) can be cleaved and the active enzyme consists of a complex of two 20 kDa (aa 120-297) and two 10 kDa (aa 317-404) subunits which associate following cleavage of inactive precursors. Caspase-1 is required for proteolytic cleavage of the IL-1 beta precursor to form the active proinflammatory cytokine. Alternate splicing generates several additional Caspase-1 isoforms with deletions in the propeptide regions or also in the mature subunits. Within the large subunit, human Caspase 1 shares 61% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat Caspase-1.
