General description

M.W. 11,000 and 18,000 (heterodimer).
Recombinant, human caspase-6 fused at the N- and C- termini to a His•Tag sequence and expressed in E. coli as a single polypeptide. Subsequently undergoes spontaneous autoprocessing to yield the active enzyme. Useful for the study of enzyme regulation and kinetics, cleavage of target substrates, and inhibitor screening. MW: 11000 and 18000.

Warning

Toxicity: Standard Handling (A)

Unit Definition

One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that will cleave 1 nmol Ac-VEID-pNA (Cat. No. 218762) per h at 37°C, pH 7.2.

Reconstitution

Following reconstitution, aliquot and freeze (-70°C). Stock solutions are stable for up to 3 months at -70°C.
Reconstitute to 1 unit/µl in PBS, 15% glycerol.

Neuroinflammation in the spinal cord is a pathological event in remifentanil-induced hyperalgesia (RIH), but its underlying molecular mechanisms remain unclear. Recent studies recapitulate the significance of the intracellular protease caspase-6 in the release of inflammatory mediators and synaptic plasticity in
