||Activation of caspases plays a central role in apoptosis. The CaspGLOW;Fluorescein Active Caspase Staining Kit provides a convenient and sensitive means for detecting activated caspases in; Living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase family inhibitor VAD-FMK conjugated to FITC (FITC-VAD-FMK) as a marker. FITC-VAD-FMK is cell permeable, nontoxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspases in apoptotic cells.
||Sensitive detection of activated caspases in living cells.
||FITC-ATAD-FMK; Wash Buffer; Z-VAD-FMK
||Fluorescence microscopy, Flow cytometry and fluorescence plate reader (Ex. = 485 nm and Em. = 535 nm)
|Features & Benefits:
||Simple one-step procedure; takes only 1-2 hours; Fast and convenient; The FITC label allows for direct detection of the activated caspases in apoptotic cells
