Activation of ICE-family proteases/caspases initiates apoptosis in mammalian cells. The Caspase-2/ICH-1 Colorimetric Protease Assay Kits provide a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence VDVAD. The assay is based on spectrophotometric detection of the chromophore p-nitroanilide (pNA) after cleavage from the labeled substrate VDVAD-pNA. The pNA light emission can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at 400 or 405nm. Comparison of the absorbance of pNA from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in Caspase-2 activity.
