MA5-11558 targets Caspase 8 in IP and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-11558 immunogen is recombinant full length human Caspase 8 protein.
Caspase 8 binds to the death effector domain (DED) of FADD through an analogous DED domain present in tandem in the proform of the caspase 8 protein. Recruitment of caspase 8 to the Fas receptor results in oligomerization of the caspase 8 protein, which in turn drives its autoactivation through "self-cleavage". Activated caspase 8 then activates other downstream caspases including caspase 9, thereby commiting the cell to undergo apoptosis.
