Caspase-1 is the best-described inflammatory caspase. It processes the cytokines interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and IL-18 and induces pyroptotic cell death. Caspase-1 is activated by multiprotein complexes called inflammasomes in response to numerous stimuli that are detected through distinct inflammasomes. NLRC4 responds to cytosolic flagellin, murine NLRP1b responds to anthrax lethal toxin, AIM2 responds to cytosolic DNA and NLRP3 responds to a variety of agonists including crystals.
Mouse Caspase-1 (p10) is detected by immunoblotting using anti-Caspase-1 (p10) (mouse), mAb (Casper-2) (Prod. No AG-20B-0044). Method: Caspase-1 was analyzed by Western blot in supernatants of differentiated bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (BMDCs) from wild-type and caspase-1-/- mice activated or not by 5 μM Nigericin for 30 min (Prod. No. AG-CN2-0020). Supernatants (30μl) were separated by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, transferred to nitrocellulose and incubated with anti-Caspase-1 (p10) (mouse), mAb (Casper-2) (1μg /ml). Proteins were visualized by a chemiluminescence detection system.
