Abcam's Caspase 9 Assay Kit (Colorimetric) provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence LEHD. The assay is based on spectrophotometric detection of the chromophore p-nitroanilide (p-NA) after cleavage from the labeled substrate LEHD-p-NA. The p-NA light emission can be quantified using a spectrophotometer or a microtiter plate reader at 400- or 405 nm.
