Irreversible, cell permeable inhibitor of caspase-1. Inhibits also caspase-4.

Product Details

Alternative Name:Caspase-1 inhibitor (fluoromethylketone)
Purity:≥98% (TLC)
Appearance:White to off-white powder.
Solubility:Soluble in DMSO.
Shipping:Ambient Temperature
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:Stock solutions should be divided into aliquots and stored at -20°C.
Handling:Packaged under inert gas.
Technical Info/Product Notes:The carboxyl groups are OMe ester forms to enhance cell permeability. If purified enzyme is used, esterase should be added for the hydrolysis of the ester groups.
Protocol:Prepare a 10mM stock solution of the caspase inhibitor in high quality DMSO. Add 2µl of this stock solution to 1 ml of culture medium containing cells to give 20µM final concentration. Effective final concentrations are estimated to be 5-20µM. If a particular caspase inhibitor is applied at higher concentrations specificity for an individual caspase or even for the caspase family (>100µM) might be compromised. DMSO concentration above 0.2% may cause cellular toxicity thus masking the effect of the caspase inhibitor. For in vivo experiments extending for 12 to 48 hours, fresh inhibitor may have to be added (injected) due to inactivation by reaction with cysteine protease.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
