Based on the detection of AFC (7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin) after cleavage from the labelled substrate IETD-AFC.

Product Details

Alternative Name:FLICE, Mch5, MACH
Applications:Fluorescent detection
Activity assay
Handling:Store Cell Lysis Buffer and 2X Reaction Buffer at 4°C after opening. Protect from light.
Shipping:Shipped on Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Contents:25ml Cell Lysis Buffer, 2ml 2X Reaction Buffer, 125µl IETD-AFC Substrate (1mM), 100µl DTT (1M).
Technical Info/Product Notes:IETD-AFC emits blue light (λmax = 400nm); upon cleavage of the substrate by caspase-8 or related caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence (λmax = 505nm), which can be quantified using a fluorometer or a fluorecence microtiter plate reader. Comparison of the fluorescence of AFC from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in caspase-8 activity.
