Caspase 8 (active) FITC Staining Kit (ab65614) provides a convenient means for sensitive detection of activated caspase 8 in living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase 8 inhibitor, IETD-FMK, conjugated to FITC (FITC-IETD-FMK) as a marker. FITC-IETD-FMK is cell permeable, non-toxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspase 8 in apoptotic cells. The FITC label allows detection of activated caspase-8 in apoptotic cells directly by fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, or fluorescence plate reader.

Active caspase 8 in Jurkat cells following four hours exposure to 50 ng/mL anti-Fas Ab (αFas) (MBL), five hours with 10 μg/mL cyclohexamide (CHX) (ab120093), or one hour pretreatment with CHX followed by four hours with αFas. Background signal subtracted, duplicates; +/- SD.
