Z-WEHD-FMK is a potent, cell-permeable, and irreversible inhibitor of caspase-5. It also inhibits caspase-1, caspase-4 and caspase-8. 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-6 activity, the following caspase apoptosis detection kit is available from Santa Cruz: Caspase-6 Kit (sc-4266 AK).
