Ac-DEVD-AFC, Caspase-3 Substrate Fluorogenic
Human and some mouse caspases are active in apoptosis and cell death and even in necrosis and inflammation. CASP Gene and orthologous enzymes have been identifies successfully in the signal transduction cascade and pathways.For cells, cell lines and tissues in culture till half confluency.
Ready-to-use fluorometric substrate for caspase-3/CPP32 (Km = 9.7 µM) and related caspases that recognize the amino acid sequence DEVD. The sequence DEVD is based on caspase-3 cleavage site in poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP). CPP32 and related caspase activity can be quantified by fluorescent detection of free AFC after cleaved from the peptide substrate DEVD-AFC at Ex. = 400 nm and Em. = 505 nm, using a fluorometer or a multi-well fluorescence plate reader. Alternatively, a shift in fluorescence from blue to green upon cleavage can be visualized using a hand-held long-UV lamp.
