【Tips】If you are studying whether a certain drug can trigger apoptosis which relys on the caspase related pathway, and want to detect the activity of caspase, this article is suitable for you! This article is especially fit for researchers who are working hard to benefit the mankind.


Caspases(cysteine-aspartic proteases) are a family of protease enzymes playing essential roles in programmed cell death (including apoptosis, pyroptosis and necroptosis) and inflammation. The cascade reaction caused by caspases is a central part of the apoptotic process, and its activation mainly includes the mitochondria-dependent pathway and the death receptor-mediated signal transduction pathway. The downstream caspases are then activated, leading to apoptosis by cleavage of specific substrates. Inhibition of apoptotic function will lead to tumorigenesis and abnormal immune function. However, hyperfunction of apoptotic function is closely related to the pathogenesis of tissue damage and organ failure.

【Assay Principle】

Abbkine Caspase Assay Kits are based on different caspases can catalyze specific substrates to generate pNA(p-nitroaniline), resulting in the release of p-nitroaniline (pNA), which can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at at 405 nm.
