‧ Detection method- Fluorecence microtiter plate reader (400-nm excitation filter and 505-nm emission filter) and fluorescence microscopy
‧ Sample type- Cell and tissue lysates
‧ Species reactivity- Mammalian
‧ Applications- Detect early/middle stages of apoptosis; differentiate apoptosis from necrosis.
Features and Benefits
‧ Simple one-step procedure; takes only 1-2 hours
‧ Fast and convenient
‧ Comparison of the fluorescence of AFC from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in LEVD-dependent caspase activity.
Cell Lysis Buffer
2X Reaction Buffer
LEVD-AFC (1 mM)
DTT (1 M)
Example of GeneTex Fluorometric Caspase Activity Assay Kit: Analysis of Caspase-3 Activity in Jurkat cells. Apoptosis was induced in Jurkat cells by camptothecin (2 μM) for 6 hours. Caspase activity was analyzed using Caspase-9 Colorimetric Assay Kit. Results were analyzed by spectrophotometer.
