Caspases are key effectors of programmed cell death. They are synthesized as inactive proenzymes which are activated by cleavage at a specific aspartate residue to form two subunits. These subunits are normally linked together by a linker which may be involved in the regulation of the different caspases. Caspase-9 is a member of the CED-3 family and bear high similarity to caspase-3. Procaspase-9 can be activated by either caspase-3 or granzyme B, although they cleave the proenzyme to different size subunits. Cleavage by granzyme B produces an active enzyme which is capable of cleaving PARP. Also, the ability of caspase-3 to activate caspase-9 seems to suggest that caspase-9 is further downstream of caspase-3 and may be involved in later changes in cells observed undergoing apoptosis. Synonyms: Cysteine-requiring Aspartate Protease-9; iCE-like apoptotic protease 6;Apoptotic protease Mch-6; Apoptotic protease-activating factor 3 <

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
