Pre-treatment with Q-VD-OPH inhibits activation of caspase-3 and suppresses inflammasome activation in rats subjected to MCAO/R. a, b Representative immunoblots and quantification demonstrating the effect of increasing concentration (mg/kg) of Q-VDOPH on levels of NLRP3, cleaved caspase-3 and caspase-1 following MCAO (2 h) and reperfusion (24 h) in ipsilateral brain tissues of rats. *P < 0.05. Significant differences between the two groups, N = 3 for each group.

|Description||Q-VD-Oph is a potent pan-caspase inhibitor with IC50 ranged from 25 to 400 nM for caspases 1,3,8, and 9.|
Q-VD-OPh （5-100 μM） potently inhibits Actinomycin D-induced DNA laddering and subsequent apoptosis with minimal toxicity in WEHI 231 cells. Q-VD-OPh prevents caspase mediated cleavage of PARP and activation of the major initiator and effector caspases.  Q-VD-OPh protects cardiac myocytes from virus-induced apoptosis in vitro. 
|In vivo||Q-VD-OPh inhibits caspase-1 activity, IL-18 protein expression, and neutrophil infiltration during ischemic ARF in mice.  In vivo, caspase inhibition by Q-VD-OPh provides protection from virus-induced myocardial injury, with a significant reduction in caspase-3 activity.  In TgCRND8 mice, Q-VD-OPh inhibits caspase-7 activation and limits the pathological changes associated with tau, including caspase cleavage. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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 MSDS / 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 MSDS / 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.
Answers to questions you may have can be found in the inhibitor handling instructions. Topics include how to prepare stock solutions, how to store inhibitors, and issues that need special attention for cell-based assays and animal experiments.
