  • Research areas

  • Relevance

    Caspases are members of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce 2 subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you very much for contacting us with your questions.

We do have some panels for caspase activity measurement:

1) Ab102486: Includes substrates for caspases 1,2,3,5,6,8, and 9. It does not include substrates for caspases 4 and 7. There are enough reagents included to run 25 assays.

2) Ab102487: Includes substrates for caspases 1,2,3/7,4,5,6,8,9, and 10. Please note that caspases 3 and 7 will be measured together. There are enough reagents included to run 25 assays.

3) Ab102488: Includes substrates for caspases 1,2,3,4,5,6,8, and 9. It does not include substrate for caspases 7. There are enough reagents included to run 25 assays.

Would one of these kits work for you? It doesn't seem like they are exactly what you had in mind but they are the closest products that we currently carry in our catalog.

I hope that this information will be useful, but please let me know if you have further questions or need anything else and I'll be happy to help.
