Caspase 6, Human Recombinant


General description

Caspase-6 (also known as Mch2) is a member of the caspase-family of cysteine proteases. Similar to other caspases, Caspase-6 also exists in cells as an inactive proenzyme. During apoptosis procaspase-6 is processed at aspartate residues by self-proteolysis and/or cleavage by another caspase. The processed active form of Caspase-6 consists of large (18 kDa) and small (11 kDa) subunits which associate to form the active enzyme. Active Caspase-6 has been shown to be of importance in the proteolysis of PARP (poly ADP-ribose polymerase), an enzyme that is involved in DNA repair and genomic maintenance. The recombinant active human Caspase-6 was expressed in E. coli.
