Activation of caspases plays a central role in apoptosis. The CaspGLOW™ Fluorescein Active Caspase Staining Kit provides a convenient and sensitive means for detecting activated caspases in living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase family inhibitor VAD-FMK conjugated to FITC (FITC-VAD-FMK) as a marker. FITC-VAD-FMK is cell permeable, nontoxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspases in apoptotic cells.
• Detection method: Fluorescence microscopy, Flow cytometry and fluorescence plate reader (Ex. = 485 nm and Em. = 535 nm) • Species reactivity: Mammalian • Kit size: Convenient sizes (25 and 100 assays) • Applications: Sensitive detection of activated caspases in living cells.
• Simple one-step procedure; takes only 1-2 hours • Fast and convenient • The FITC label allows for direct detection of the activated caspases in apoptotic cells

Sensitive detection of activated caspases in living cells.
Human and some mouse caspases are active in apoptosis and cell death and even in necrosis and inflammation. CASP Gene and orthologous enzymes have been identifies successfully in the signal transduction cascade and pathways.
