  • 製品の概要

    Caspase 3 Assay Kit (Fluorometric) (ab39383) provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the DEVD-dependent caspase activity. The assay is based on detection of cleavage of substrate DEVD-AFC (AFC: 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin). DEVD-AFC emits blue light (λ max = 400 nm); upon cleavage of the substrate by CPP32 or related caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence (Ex/Em = 400/505 nm), which can be quantified using a fluorometer or a fluorescence microtiter plate reader. Comparison of the fluorescence of AFC from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in caspase-3/CPP32 activity.


    Due to the nature of the substrate, this assay also detects caspase 7 activity.

製品の特性

  • 機能Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. At the onset of apoptosis it proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp-
    -Gly-217' bond. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) between the basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. Involved in the cleavage of huntingtin.
  • 組織特異性Highly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney. Moderate levels in brain and skeletal muscle, and low in testis. Also found in many cell lines, highest expression in cells of the immune system.
  • 配列類似性Belongs to the peptidase C14A family.
  • 翻訳後修飾Cleavage by granzyme B, caspase-6, caspase-8 and caspase-10 generates the two active subunits. Additional processing of the propeptides is likely due to the autocatalytic activity of the activated protease. Active heterodimers between the small subunit of caspase-7 protease and the large subunit of caspase-3 also occur and vice versa.
    S-nitrosylated on its catalytic site cysteine in unstimulated human cell lines and denitrosylated upon activation of the Fas apoptotic pathway, associated with an increase in intracellular caspase activity. Fas therefore activates caspase-3 not only by inducing the cleavage of the caspase zymogen to its active subunits, but also by stimulating the denitrosylation of its active site thiol.

I am afraid that your protease inhibitors might interefere with the assay. Since Caspase is a cysteine protease it is probably inhibited by most protease inhibitor cocktails. The assay is based on the catalytic clevage of the substrate DEVD-A...

Thank you for your inquiry. This kit will detect active Caspase-3 from samples. The procasepase-3 (inactive) is proteolytically processed into the active Caspase-3. I hope this information helps.  Please contact us with any other questions.

Unfortunately, this is proprietary information.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products. The sensitivity range for the fluorometric substrate (K105) is in the tenths of a µM, while the sensitivity of the colorimetric substrates (K106) is in the single digit µM. These kits ca...
