Purpose A caspase-3 inhibitor
Sequence Z-Asp(OMe)-Glu(OMe)-Val-Asp(OMe)-FMK
Characteristics PubChem CID: 16760394
A synthetic peptide that irreversibly inhibits activity of DEVD-dependent caspases (e.g., caspase-3 and caspase-7) 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 > 98 % by HPLC
Chemical Name Z-DEVD-FMK, Caspase-3 inhibitor, Z-DEVD fluoromethylketone
Formula C₃₀H₄₁FN₄O₁₂
Permeability Cell-permeable
Solubility DMSO
Molecular Weight 668.7 g/mol
Application Notes We recommend using 1000-5000X dilutions for inhibiting caspase-3 activity in Jurkat cell culture (e.g., Add 1 µL to 1-5 mL of culture medium). The inhibitor can be added t°Culture medium together with apoptosis inducer or 1 hr before inducer is added. The optimal doses may vary for different cells and culture conditions.
