Home Antibody All anti-APAF2 antibodies
Also for APAF2 (NM_001160)
|Apaf1 antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human Apaf1. The sequence of the immunogenic peptide differs from that of murine Apaf1 by one amino acid .|

|Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain containing adapter molecules and members of the caspase family of proteases. The mammalian homologous of the key cell death gene CED-4 in C. elegans was identified recently from human and mouse and designated Apaf1 for apoptosis protease-activating factor 1 (1,2). Apaf1 binds to cytochrome c (Apaf2) and caspase-9 (Apaf3), which leads to caspase-9 activation. Activated caspase-9 in turn cleaves and activates caspase-3 that is one of the key proteases, being responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many key proteins in apoptosis (3). Apaf1 can also associate with caspase-4 and caspase-8 (4). Apaf1 transcript is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues .|
