Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the human CASP7 (P55210-1) (Met 1-Gln 303) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host
E. coli
Predicted N Terminal
Ala 24 & Ala 207
Molecule Mass
The full length of recombinant human CASP7 comprises 313 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 35KDa. As a result of proteolytic cleavage, the apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 20 & 11 kDa ,corresponding to the N-reminal P20 subunit and the C-teminal p11 subunit respectively in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile 20mM HEPES, 100mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 0.10% Sucrose, 0.1% chaps, pH 7.5
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Caspase-7 / CASP7 Background Information

Caspase 7, also known as caspase-7 and MCH3, belongs to the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Caspases play a role in the signal transduction pathways of apoptosis, necrosis and inflammation. There are two major classes of caspases: initiators and effectors. The initiator isoforms (caspases-1,-4,-5,-8,-9,-1,-11,-12) are activated by, and interact with, upstream adaptor molecules through protein-protein interaction domains known as CARD and DED. Effector caspases (-3,-6,-7) are responsible for cleaving downstream substrates and are sometimes referred to as the executioner caspases. Caspase 7 exists in lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen and heart, and moderately in testis. Caspase 7 cannot be detected in the brain. Caspase 7 functions in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. It cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). It proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp- -Gly-217' bond. Overexpression promotes programmed cell death.
