Z-YVAD-FMK is a synthetic peptide that irreversibly inhibits activity of caspase-1. The inhibitor is designed as a methyl ester to facilitate cell permeability. The product can be used for both in vitro and in vivo studies.
|Source||Cell Physiol Biochem (2018). Figure 3. Z-VAD-FMK|
|Cell Lines||GBM cells|
|Incubation Time||3 h|
|Results||To examine whether RA-induced apoptosis was caspase-dependent, we introduced the pan-caspase inhibitor z-VAD-fmk. As shown in Fig. 3D, combined treatment with z-VAD-fmk rescued RA-induced cell death.|

|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
