Fluorometric substrate for Caspase-3.
N-acetyl-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-AFC; 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin
Catalog #C2087-11
Activation of ICE-family proteases/caspases initiates apoptosis in mammalian cells. Used in the BioAssay™ Caspase-3 Apoptosis Detection Kit (Cat.# C2087-10), providing a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence DEVD.
Ready-to-use fluorometric substrate for caspase-3/CPP32 (Km = 9.7uM) 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 (7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin) at Ex 400nm and Em 505nm, using a fluorometer or a multi-well fluorescence plate reader. Upon proteolytic cleavage of the substrate by caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence. The increase in the yellow-green fluorescence is proportional to the increase in caspase activity.Alternatively, a shift in fluorescence from blue to green upon cleavage can be visualized using a hand-held long-UV lamp.
