Inhibitor for Caspases (specific pan Caspase inhibitor)

Z-VAD-FMK (Z-VAD(OMe)-FMK) is a cell permeable, non seletive inhibitor for caspase-1 and caspase-3 enzymes which shows no cytotoxic effects. The benzyloxycarbonyl protected tripeptide is commonly used as inhibitor for T cell apoptosis, staunosporin induced cell death and Fas-mediate apoptosis. Our Pan Caspase inhibitor is commonly used for inflammation and apoptose studies. The chemically manufactured methylester of Z-VAD-FMK is soluble in DMSO and other organic solvents, but insoluble in water. We will ship a product specific vial instruction sheet together with the peptide.

Z-VAD-FMK blocks caspases irreversible, but less selective, where as our inhibitor Ac-YVAD-CMK is specific for Caspase-1. We offer additionally the reversible Caspase-1 inhibitor Ac-YVAD-CHO. Our caspase inhibitors are manufactured in Japan by Peptide Institute Inc. and are usually available for prompt delivery ex stock Sandhausen.
