Detection of caspases activation by fluorochrome-labeled inhibitors: Multiparameter analysis by laser scanning cytometry
Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors
The detection of caspase activation combined with cell permeabilization requires exposure of live cells to FLICA followed by their fixation. Cell reactivity with the respective FLICA, under these conditions, identifies the activated caspases and makes it possible to correlate their activation with the cell cycle position and other cell attributes that can be measured only after cell fixation/permeabilization. FLICA can also be used to study intracellular localization of caspases, including their translocation.
