General description

Caspase 12 is a protein that belongs to a family of enzymes called caspases that cleave their substrates at C-terminal aspartic acid residues. The human caspase 12 gene is localized at a single locus within the caspase 1/ICE gene cluster on chromosome 11q22. The functionality is lost in humans and they cannot play a role in Alzheimer′s disease. Caspase-12 is detected in endoplasmic reticulum (ER), plays a role in ER-mediated apoptosis and inflammatory caspase activation pathway.


Recognizes full length and possibly truncated p20 caspase 12.


recombinant mouse caspase 12 (residues 95-318).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Caspase 12 (CASP12) has a downregulatory function during infection and may play a role in protection against inflammatory disease. It is associated with rheumatoid arthritis in African-Americans. Caspase-12 inhibits caspase-1 activation and is associated with susceptibility factor for bacterial sepsis but does not influence the susceptibility to Candida sepsis.

Preparation Note

Purified from culture supernatant of hybridoma cells grown in a bioreactor.
