Activation of ICE-family proteases/caspases initiates apoptosis in mammalian cells. USBio's Caspase-8 Apoptosis Detection Kit provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence IETD. The assay is based on detection of cleavage of substrate IETD-AFC (7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin). IETD-AFC emits blue light.
Catalog #C2087-30
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.
