    • HeLa cells were incubated at 37°C for 1h with vehicle control (0 µM) and different concentrations of Z-VAD-FMK (ab120382). After this incubation 10µM of camptothecin (ab120115) was added to all samples and the cells were incubated for further 24h. Increased expression of full length PARP (ab37722) in camptothecin induced apoptotic HeLA cells correlates with an increase in Z-VAD-FMK concentration, as described in literature.

      Whole cell lysates were prepared with RIPA buffer (containing protease inhibitors and sodium orthovanadate), 10µg of each were loaded on the gel and the WB was run under reducing conditions. After transfer the membrane was blocked for an hour using 5% BSA before being incubated with ab37722 at 1 µg /ml and ab8227 at 1 µg /ml overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP (ab97051) at 1/10000 dilution and visualised using ECL development solution.
