Purpose A caspase-4 inhibitor
Sequence Z-Val-Asp(OMe)-Val-Ala-Asp(OMe)-FMK
Characteristics PubChem CID: 44135215
A synthetic peptide that irreversibly inhibits activity of caspase-2. 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
