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 µg cell lysates if protein concentration has been measured.
3. Resuspend cells in 50 µL of chilled Cell Lysis Buffer containing 10 mM DTT to each sample.
6. Add 5 µL of the 1 mM IETD-AFC (50 µ M final conc.) into each tube individually and incubate at 37 °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.
