Caspase‑3 in Jurkat Human Cell Line. Caspase‑3 was detected in immersion fixed Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line treated with Staurosporine using Rabbit Anti-Human Caspase‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7071) at 1 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL004) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Caspase-3 (Cysteine-aspartic acid protease 3/Casp3; also Yama, apopain and CPP32) is a 29 kDa heterodimer that belongs to the peptidase C14A family of enzymes. It is widely expressed and considered to be the major executioner caspase in the apoptotic cascade. Human procaspase-3 is a 32 kDa, 277 amino acid (aa) protein and is normally an inactive homodimer. Following cell stress/activation, procaspase-3 undergoes proteolysis to generate an N-terminal 148 aa p17/17 kDa subunit (aa 29-175), plus a 102 aa C-terminal p12/12 kDa subunit. These subunits noncovalently heterodimerize, and associate with another p17/p12 heterodimer to form an active enzyme. There is one potential variant that shows an alternative start site nine aa upstream of the standard start site coupled with a 21 aa substitution for aa 162-277. Over aa 29-175, human and mouse caspase-3 share 87% aa identity.
