Description

The EnzChek Caspase-3 Assay Kit #1 allows detection of apoptosis by providing a simple and reliable method for assaying caspase-3 activity. The basis for the assay is the aminomethylcoumarin (AMC)-derived substrate Z-DEVD-AMC. This substrate, which is weakly fluorescent in the UV range (excitation/emission maxima ~330/390 nm), yields a bright, blue-fluorescent product (excitation/emission maxima ~342/441 nm) upon proteolytic cleavage. The kit can be used to continuously measure the activity of caspase-3 and closely related proteases in cell extracts and purified enzyme preparations, using a fluorometer or fluorescence microplate reader.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
