Caspase 9, Human Recombinant
Caspase-9 is a member of the caspase-family of cysteine proteases. Similar to other caspases, Caspase-9 also exists in cells as an inactive proenzyme. During the initiation of apoptosis, procaspase-9 is processed at aspartate residues to form active Caspase-9. As one of the initiator caspases, active Caspase-9 functions to trigger activation of downstream effector caspases, leading to disassembly of cell structures. The recombinant active human Caspase-9 was expressed in E. coli.
