Caspase-1 Colorimetric Assay Kit
The Caspase-1 Colorimetric Assay Kit is designed to provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence YVAD. The assay is based on spectrophotometric detection of the chromophore p-nitroanilide (pNA) after cleavage from the labeled substrate YVAD-pNA. The pNA light emission can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at 400- or
405-nm. Comparison of the absorbance of pNA from a treated sample with an untreated control allows determination of the fold increase in Caspase-1 activity.
YVAD-pNA Substrate: 500 μL
1 M dithiothreitol (DTT): 400 μL
Lysis Buffer: 100 mL
2X Reaction Buffer: 10 ml
Store at ≤ -20 °C for up to 6 months after initial use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
