  • Product overview

    Abcam's Caspase 6 Assay Kit (Fluorometric) provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence VEID. The assay is based on detection of cleavage of substrate VEID-AFC (AFC: 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin). VEID-AFC emits blue light (?max = 400 nm); upon cleavage of the substrate by caspase 6 or related caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence (?max = 505 nm), which can be quantified using a fluorometer or a fluorescence microtiter plate reader.
