Caspase Poly,1,2,3,6,7,8,9, 10 Detection

Carboxyfluorescein Caspase Detection Kits ™
Apoptosis detection and in situ labeling of active caspase in live cells.
Key Benefits:
  • Non-cytotoxic assay arrests further apoptotic activity via caspase inhibition.
  • Cell permeablity permits direct visualization of cytosolic apoptotic events.
  • Apoptotic cell population does not diminish over time.
  • Add reagent directly to cells. No special buffer or media needed. No preparation of cell lysates required. Simple wash procedure.
  • Works in diverse cell lines: human, rodent, Drosophila.
  • Can be performed in conjunction with Annexin staining, TUNEL, antibody staining, or with other APO LOGIX reagents on the same population of cells.
  • Permits high through-put screening. Protocol can be adapted for ex vivo as well as in situ experiments.
  • Works with fluorescence microscopy, 96-well fluorescence plate readers, or flow cytometry.
  • Yields both quantitative and qualitative results. Gives strong signal with little background noise.
  • Mark activity across the range of caspase proteins. Poly-caspase and caspase-specific assays to target caspases 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, or 10 are available.
  • Applications – Flow Cytometry, Fluorescence Plate Reader, Fluorescent Microscope
Assay Principle
APO LOGIX Carboxyfluoroscein Caspase Detection Kits label active caspases in living cells undergoing apoptosis. Cell Technology’s probes utilize carboxyfluorescein(FAM)-labeled peptide fluoromethyl ketone (FMK) caspase inhibitors (FAM-peptide-FMK). These FAM-peptide-FMK compounds are both cell permeable and non-cytotoxic during the course of the assay and thus allow the detection of active caspases in living cell systems.
