Literature # TB323

The Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Assay is a luminescent assay that measures caspase-3 and -7 activities in purified enzyme preparations or cultures of adherent or suspension cells. The assay provides a proluminescent caspase-3/7 substrate, which contains the tetrapeptide sequence DEVD. This substrate is cleaved to release aminoluciferin, a substrate of luciferase used in the production of light. The Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Reagent is optimized for caspase activity, luciferase activity and cell lysis. Addition of the single Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Reagent in an "add-mix-measure" format results in cell lysis, followed by caspase cleavage of the substrate and generation of a “glow-type” luminescent signal. The Caspase-Glo® 3/7 Assay is designed for use with multiwell plate formats, making it ideal for automated high-throughput screening of caspase activity or apoptosis.
