Caspase-3 & Caspase-7 Immunoassay Kits

Caspase-3 plays a key role in initiation of cellular events during the apoptotic process. PromoKine's Caspase-3 and Caspase-7 Immunoassay Kits allow quantification of the specific activity of caspase-3 and -7, respectively. Since caspase-3 and -7 share the same target substrate sequence (DEVD), it is difficult to differentiate the cleavage activity attributed by these two caspases in vitro. Thus, the assays utilize caspase-3 or -7 specific antibodies to capture the activated caspase-3 or -7 in cell lysate. Specific activity of caspase-3 or -7 can then be analyzed using the common caspase-3/7 substrate DEVD-AFC. The assay system ensures absolute specific detection of only caspase-3 or caspase-7 activity in apoptotic samples. Other caspases and non-specific proteases are not detected.
