Sequence Z-Val-Ala-Asp(OMe)-FMK
Characteristics A synthetic peptide that irreversibly inhibits activity of caspase family proteases and blocks apoptosis. The inhibitor is designed as a methyl ester to facilitate cell permeability. The product can be used for both in vitro and in vivo studies. (CAUTION: If the intended use is on purified or recombinant enzymes, esterase should be added to generate free carboxyl groups).
Purity Single spot by TLC
Molecular Weight 467.5 Da
CAS-No 187389-52-2
Application Notes We recommend using 2-10 µM for inhibiting caspase activity in cell culture.
The optimal doses may vary for different cells and culture conditions.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Lyophilized
Handling Advice Protect from light and moisture.
Storage -20 °C
Expiry Date 12 months
