Abcam's pan Caspase (active) Red Staining Kit provides a convenient means for detecting activated caspases in living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase family inhibitor VAD-FMK conjugated to sulfo-rhodamine (Red-VAD-FMK) as the fluorescent in situ marker. Red-VAD-FMK is cell permeable, nontoxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspases in apoptotic cells.

Activation of caspases plays a central role in apoptosis.
