General description

Activation of ICE-family proteases/caspases initiates apoptosis in mammalian cells. Chemicon′s Caspase-8 Colorimetric Activity Assay Kits provide a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence IETD. The assay is based on spectophotometric detection of the chromophore p-nitroaniline (pNA) after cleavage from the labeled substrate IETD-pNA. The free pNA can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at 405 nm. Comparison of the absorbance of pNA from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in caspase-8 activity.

Application

Caspase-8 Colorimetric Activity Assay Kits provide a simple & convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence IETD.

Storage and Stability

Store kit materials at -20°C up to their expiration date.

Special Precautions:

· After thawing reagents, use immediately or aliquot and freeze at -20oC for longer storage. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

· The Caspase-8 substrate and pNA standard are especially light sensitive. Maintain these reagents in amber or covered containers.

IL-13 is a major Th2 cytokine that is capable of inducing inflammation, excessive mucus production, airway hyperresponsiveness, alveolar remodeling, and fibrosis in the murine lung. Although IL-13 through its binding to IL-4Ralpha/IL-13Ralpha1 uses the canonical STAT6-signaling pathway to mediate these
