|Immunogen||Sequence: Ac-Ile-Glu-Thr-Asp-AFC (AFC, 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin)|
|Description||Ready-to-use fluorometric substrate for FLICE/caspase-8 and related caspases that recognize the amino acid sequence IETD. The sequence IETD is based on caspase-8 cleavage site in CPP32/caspase-3 proenzyme. FLICE and related caspase activity can be quantified by fluorescent detection of free AFC after cleavage from the peptide substrate IETD-AFC at Ex. = 400 nm and Em. = 505 nm, using a fluorometer or multi-well fluorescence plate reader. Alternatively, a shift in fluorescence from blue to green upon cleavage can be visualized using a hand-held long-UV lamp.|
|Protocol||1. Induce apoptosis in cells by desired method. Concurrently incubate a control culture without induction. 2. Count cells and pellet 1-5 x 10 6 cells or use 50-200 μ g cell lysates if protein concentration has been measured. 3. Resuspend cells in 50 μ l of chilled Cell Lysis Buffer (Cat.# 1067-100). 4. Incubate cells on ice for 10 minutes. 5. Add 50 μ l of 2X Reaction Buffer (Cat.# 1068-20, -80) containing 10 mM DTT (Cat.# 1201-1) to each sample. 6. Add 5 μ l of the 1 mM IETD-AFC (50 μ M final conc.) into each tube individually and incubate at 37 o C for 1-2 hour. 7. Read samples in a fluorometer equipped with a 400-nm excitation filter and 505-nm emission filter. For a plate-reading set-up, transfer the samples to a 96-well plate. You may perform the entire assay directly in a 96-well plate. Fold-increase in IETD-dependent caspase-8 activity can be determined by comparing these results with the level of the uninduced control.|
