  1. Total protein extracts were boiled in 1X SDS Sample Buffer containing 1% SDS and 1.25% β-mercaptoethanol at 95°C for 5 min prior to loading.
  2. 20 μg of boiled extracts were loaded and resolved on 8-16% SDS-polyacrylamide gel.
  3. The Thermo Scientific - Spectra Multicolor Broad Range (Cat # 26634) were used as molecular mass markers.
  4. Proteins were then transferred onto PVDF membrane by wet transfer and protein transfer was confirmed with Ponceau-S staining.
  5. The PVDF membrane was incubated with 25 mL of blocking buffer [Tris Buffered Saline, pH 7.4 plus 0.1% TW20 (TBST)] containing 5% (W/V) BSA at room temperature for 1 h.
  6. The membrane was rinsed with TBST once.
  7. The membrane was immersed with the protein side up in the primary antibody solution (CASP8; 1:200) in TBST containing 5% (W/V) BSA and incubated for 16 h at 4°C.
  8. The membrane was rinsed in TBST thrice for 5 min each.
  9. The membrane was incubated in the HRP-conjugated secondary antibody solution (Goat anti-rabbit IgG-HRP; 1:20,000) in TBST containing 5% (W/V) BSA and incubated for 1 hour at room temperature (~26°C) with gentle agitation.
  10. The membrane was rinsed thrice TBST thrice for 5 min each.
  11. The membrane was rinsed in TBS twice for 30 s each.
  12. Signals were detected with ECL-2 Substrate. The blot was scanned for 300 s.
  13. The membrane was rinsed three times TBST.
  14. Incubated in Acidic Glycine Stripping Buffer at room temperature with gentle agitation for 3 times, 10 min each.
  15. The membrane was washed in TBST 2 times for 10 min each.
  16. Repeated Steps 5-12 with the loading control antibody (anti-Actin; 1:6,000) and its matching secondary antibody (Goat anti-rabbit IgG-HRP; 1:20,000).
