Caspases are cysteine proteases, expressed as inactive precursors, that mediate apoptosis by proteolysis of specific substrates. Caspases have the ability to cleave after aspartic acid residues. There are two classes of caspases involved in apoptosis; initiators (activation by receptor cluster) and effectors (activation by mitochondrial permeability transition). Proapoptotic signals autocatalytically activate initiator caspases, such as Caspase 8 and Caspase 9. Activated initiator caspases then process effector caspases, such as Caspase 3 and Caspase 7, which in turn cause cell collapse. Caspase 9 (also known as ICE like apoptotic protease 6 (ICE LAP6), apoptotic protease Mch6, and apoptotic protease activating factor 3 (Apaf3)) is a member of the peptidase family C14 that contains a CARD domain. This caspase is active as a heterotetramer and has been reported to have two isoforms. ProCaspase 9 has been reported to be approximately 47 kD. This caspase is present in the cytosol and, upon activation, translocates to the mitochondria. Caspase 9 is involved in the caspase activation cascade responsible for apoptosis execution and cleaves/activates Caspase 3 and Caspase 6. Caspase 9 is inhibited by the dominant negative isoform, BclXL, cIAP1, cIAP2, XIAP, and Livin. This caspase becomes activated when recruited to Apaf1/cytochrome c complex, and following cleavage by Apaf1, granzyme B, Caspase 3, possibly Caspase 8 and Caspase 10 into large p37 and small p10 subunits. Caspase 9 intereacts with BIRC7 and has been shown to cleave PARP and vimentin.

Could I use HeLa cell lysate as a positive control for Caspase 9 primary antibodies in WB?
After looking through our testing it does appear you should be fine using HeLa as a positive control cell lysate for Caspase 9 in Western Blot, as we have used this sample successfully in our QC tests and shown expression of Caspase 9.
Caspase 3, the executioner of apoptosis Caspase-3 enzyme is a member of the family of endoproteases which regulate inflammation and apoptosis signaling networks. Caspase-3 is known as an executioner caspase in apoptosis because of its role in coordinating the destruction of cellular stru... Read full blog post.
Caspase 9 - an important apoptosis marker Caspases are essential mediators of programmed cell death and are needed for both the induction of apoptosis as well as for aiding the degradation of cellular structures. Initiator caspases (such as Caspase-9) sense and respond to various signals i... Read full blog post.
