Caspase-11/Caspase-4 was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes treated with LPS using Rat Anti-Mouse Caspase-11/Caspase-4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB86481) at 25 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Mouse Caspase-11 (commonly referred as Caspase-4) is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease family known as caspases that function in initiating apoptosis or activating proinflammitory cytokines. Mouse Caspase-11 is expressed as a 343 amino acid latent zymogen. The active caspase-11 is cleaved into two subunits, p20 (aa 81-266) and p10 (aa 286-373). Caspase-11 is one of several caspases associated with the inflammasome and plays an important role in the activation of proinflammatory cytokines. Caspase-11 is activated by an autocatalytic mechanism or by cleavage by Caspase-8 in response to ER stress or bacterial infection, and its expression and activation can be induced by exposure to LPS. The active enzyme can cleave and activate Caspase-1 which in turn activates IL-1 beta. Mouse Caspase-11 has a 59 and 89% homology to human and rat Caspase-4, respectively.
