Biological Activity

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.

Method western blotting
Cell Lines GBM cells
Concentrations 20 μM
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 Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
