Ac-DEVD-CHO (Caspase-3 Inhibitor I, N-Ac-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-CHO) is a potent aldehyde inhibitor of Group II caspases with Ki values of 0.2 nM and 0.3 nM for for caspase-3 and caspase-7, respectively. Weak inhibition for caspase-2.

Microwave (MW) hyperthermia triggers cell death through caspase-3-mediated apoptosis. H460, PC-9 and H1975 cells were treated with or without Ac-DEVD-CHO for 3 h prior to MW hyperthermia (43°C for 90 min), then allowed to recover at 37°C until 24 h. (A) Cell viability was determined by CCK-8 assay. Data are expressed as the means ± SEM of 3 independent experiments. *P<0.05 vs. the control group, **P<0.01 vs. the control group.

|Description||Ac-DEVD-CHO (Caspase-3 Inhibitor I, N-Ac-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-CHO) is a potent aldehyde inhibitor of Group II caspases with Ki values of 0.2 nM and 0.3 nM for for caspase-3 and caspase-7, respectively. Weak inhibition for caspase-2.|
Ac-DEVD-CHO is a potent inhibitor of caspase-3 (Ki = 230 pM). In contrast, caspase-2 cleaves the tetrapeptide substrate poorly and is only weakly inhibited by this aldehyde (Ki = 1.7 μM). Group III caspases are broadly inhibited by Ac-DEVD-CHO with Ki values ranging from 1 to 300 nM. Inhibition of caspase-3 by Ac-DEVD-CHO in isolated working-heart rat model significantly improves post-ischemic contractile recovery of stunned myocardium, even when given after the onset of ischemia. The mechanism(s) of protection by Ac-DEVD-CHO appear to be independent of apoptosis. Troponin I cleavage was not inhibited by Ac-DEVD-CHO.
|In vivo||Ac-DEVD-CHO administered at the time of MI results in a 61% reduction in activated caspase-3 expression in cardiomyocytes (p<0.05), and an 84% reduction in cardiomyocyte apoptosis in the young animals. However, in the aging mice, caspase inhibition had no effect on activated caspase-3 expression or cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Ac-DEVD-CHO suppressed and/or delayed the progression of photoreceptor cell damage in rats and delays disease progression in rd gene-carring mice, which normally develop retinal degeneration early in life.|

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
