Ac-DEVD-pNA, Caspase-3 Substrate, Colorimetric
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 colorimetric substrate for CPP32/caspase-3 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 spectrophotometric detection of free pNA (l = 400 nm) after cleavage from the peptide substrate DEVD-pNA, using a spectrophotometer or multi-well plate reader. The ready-to-use caspase substrate provides an economic alternative for researchers who perform large amounts of caspase assays.
