  • (J,K)After pre-treated with Caspase-3 inhibitor Z-DEVD-FMK 50μM, the apoptotic rates of cells induced by E Platinum in BGC-823, MGC-803, and SGC-7901 cells were detected by Annexin V/PI double-staining assay. Ann.V-/PI- as healthy cells, Ann.+/PI- as early apoptotic cells, Ann.+/PI+ probably as late apoptotic cells. Data were shown as means SD for three independent experiments (*P<0.05 and **P<0.01 compared with control, ##P<0.01 compared to Z-DEVD-FMK+40 μM E Platinum group with treatment of 40 μM E Platinum).

    Immunoblotting analysis was performed for the active-caspase-3 and cleavage of MCL-1 in MM.1S cells treated with z-DEVD-fmk (20 μM, 1 h) and following GSK126 (25 μM, 24 h).

  • Caspase activation degrades Beclin-1. (A and B) After pretreatment with z-VAD-fmk (20 μM) or z-DEVD-fmk (20 μM) for 1 h, K562 cells were exposed to BIIB021 (400 nM) while 32Dp210-T315I cells were exposed to BIIB021 (200 nM) for 24 h. Whole-cell lysates were subjected to western blot analysis to examine the expression of Beclin-1, LC3I/II, p62, PARP and caspase-3.

Biological Activity

Description Z-DEVD-FMK is a specific, irreversible Caspase-3 inhibitor, and also shows potent inhibition on caspase-6, caspase-7, caspase-8, and caspase-10.
Caspase-3 [1]
In vitro

Z-DEVD-FMK (1–200 μM) inhibits D4-GDI cleavage and apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner. [1] Z-DEVD-FMK reduces ceramide-induced cardiomyocyte death and significantly inhibits the activation of caspase 3. [3] Z-DEVD-FMK (100μM) attenuates OxyHb-induced cell detachment, reduced caspase-2 and -3 activities, abolishes OxyHb-induced DNA ladders, and prevents OxyHb-induced cleavage of PARP in cultured brain microvessel endothelial cells. [4] Z-DEVD-FMK (100 μM) blocks MPP+-induced increases in caspase-3 enzyme activity. Z-DEVD-FMK dose dependently blocks 6-OHDA-induced apoptotic cell death with IC50 of 18 μM. [5]

Caspase activity assay :

Caspase-3 and caspase-9 activities are measured using fluorescent-based substrate. After treatment, the cells are resuspended in lysis buffer (50 mM Tris HCl, 1 mM EDTA, and 10 mM EGTA) containing 10 mM digitonin for 20 min at 37°C. Supernatants are treated with either of the fluorogenic substrates Ac-DEVD-AFC for caspase-3 or Ac-LEHD-AFC for caspase-9 for 1 h at 37°C and fluorescence is measured at excitation at 400 nm and emission at 505 nm using a Gemini XS fluorescence plate reade

  • Cell lines: N27 cells
  • Concentrations: ~50 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 hours
  • Method: N27 cells are incubated with 100 μM 6-OHDA for 24 h or 300 μM MPP+ for 36 h in the presence or absence of 50 μM Z-DEVD-FMK and cell death is determined by MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-3-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide) assay, which is widely used to assess cell viability. After treatment, the cells are incubated in serum-free medium containing 0.25 mg/ml MTT for 3 h at 37°C. Formation of formazan from tetrazolium is measured at 570 nm with a reference wavelength at 630 nm using a SpectraMax microplate reader.

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.
