Caspase-6 Colorimetric Assay Kit

Activation of ICE-family proteases/caspases initiates apoptosis in mammalian cells. The Caspase-6 Fluorometric Assay Kit provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence VEID. The assay is based on detection of cleavage of substrate VEID-AFC (AFC: 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin). VEID-AFC emits blue light (ax = 400 nm); upon cleavage of the substrate by Mch2 or related caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence (ax = 505 nm), which can be quantified using a fluorometer or a fluorecence microtiter plate reader.

Key Information Description
