Caspases play important roles in apoptosis and inflammation. ICT’s FLICA assay kits are used by researchers seeking to quantitate apoptosis via caspase activity in cultured cells. The FLICA 660 Caspase-1 probe allows researchers to assess caspase-1 activation. The FLICA reagent 660-YVAD-FMK enters each cell and irreversibly binds to activated caspase-1. Because the 660-YVAD-FMK FLICA reagent becomes covalently coupled to the active enzyme, it is retained within the cell, while any unbound 660-YVAD-FMK FLICA reagent diffuses out of the cell and is washed away. The remaining far red fluorescent signal is a direct measure of the active caspase-1 enzyme activity present in the cell at the time the reagent was added. Cells that contain the bound FLICA can be analyzed by fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry. Cells labeled with the FLICA reagent may be read immediately or preserved for 16 hours using the fixative. Unfixed samples may also be analyzed with Hoechst stain to detect changes in nuclear morphology.

  1. Prepare samples and controls.

  2. Dilute 10X Cellular Wash Buffer 1:10 with diH20.

  3. Reconstitute FLICA with 50 µL DMSO.

  4. Dilute FLICA 1:5 by adding 200 µL PBS.

  5. Add diluted FLICA to each sample at 1:30-1:60 (e.g. spike at 1:30 by adding 10 µL to 290 µL cultured cells).

  6. Incubate approximately 1 hour.

  7. Remove media and wash cells 3 times: add 1X Cellular Wash Buffer and spin cells.

  8. If desired, label with additional stains, such as Hoechst, DAPI, or an antibody.

  9. If desired, fix cells.

  10. Analyze with a fluorescence microscope or flow cytometer. FLICA 660 excites at 660 nm and emits at 680-690 nm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: FLICA 660 optimally excites at 660 nm and has a peak emission at 685-690 nm, and Propidium Iodide excites at 615nm. Can I use the FLICA 660 and the Propidium Iodide to detect pyroptosis by Flow cytometry? Answer: We have done some two-color panels pairing FLICA 660 with green emission fluors, however, we have not evaluated it alongside Propidium Iodide. That said, despite emission spectra overlap between Propidium Iodide and 660-YVAD-FMK I believe it should be possible to resolve the red vs far red fluors with appropriate compensation. I wanted to make you aware of Green Live/Dead Stain, ICT’s membrane impermeant green fluorescent vital stain for differentiating live and dead cells. This product performs similarly to Propidum Iodide, however, due to its green emission properties, it is compatible with our FLICA 660 products without the need for compensation.
