Every item is shipped based on the best shipping method assessed for the temperature requirements of that specific item. Items are grouped and shipped together whenever
possible, and a separate shipping charge will be included for each shipping method required. Shipping charges listed below are from our US warehouses to the Contiguous US,
Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and Puerto Rico. Shipping charges for countries outside the US and Canada will be determined once order has been received
Please note: We can not ship to PO boxes

Caspase-3, also known as apopain, SCA-1, Yama and CPP32, is an aspartate-specific cysteine protease that belongs to the ICE subfamily of caspases. Caspase-3 is expressed in cells as an inactive precursor from which the p17 and p11 subunits of the mature caspase-3 are proteolytically generated during apoptosis. The caspase-3 precursor is first cleaved at Asp175-Ser176 to produce the p11 subunit and the p20 peptide. Subsequently, the p20 peptide is cleaved at Asp28-Ser29 to generate the mature p17 subunit. The active caspase-3 enzyme is a heterodimer composed of two p17 and two p11 subunits. At the onset of apoptosis, caspase-3 proteolytically cleaves PARP at an Asp216-Gly217 bond. During the execution of the apoptotic cascade, activated caspase-3 releases SREBP from the membrane of the ER in a proteolytic reaction that is distinct from their normal sterol-dependent activation. Caspase-3 cleaves and activates SREBPs between the basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Caspase-3 also cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. The human caspase-3 gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein that is highly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver, kidney and cells of the immune system.
