Caspase-3 Inhibitor III (Ac-DEVD-CMK) is a potent cell-permeable and irreversible inhibitor of caspase-3, which is a member of the ICE-CED-3 family of cysteine proteases. Caspase inhibitors play an important role in investigating biological processes. The caspase family of proteins function as key components of the apoptotic machinery and act to destroy specific target proteins which are critical to cellular longevity. Following use of the inhibitor, standard apoptosis assays can then be used to examine treated cells for evidence of apoptosis.
For the fluorometric determination of caspase-3 activity, the following caspase apoptosis detection kit is available from Santa Cruz: Caspase-3 Kit (sc-4263 AK). Caspase-3 Inhibitor III is an inhibitor of caspase-10, caspase-6, caspase-7 and caspase-8.

BrandhorstBrandhorst, D. et al. (PubMed 23536200) assessed whether antiapoptotic preconditioning could improve in vitro and post-transplant function of isolated human islets. They found that the caspase-3 inhibitor Ac-DEVD-CMK (Caspase-3 Inhibitor III) interfered with proinsulin conversion in preconditioned islets reducing their potency to cure diabetic mice. -SCBT Publication Review
