N-Ac-Tyr-Val-Ala-Asp-CHO (Ac-YVAD-CHO) is a synthetic peptide that reversibly and selectively inhibits interleukin-1β converting enzyme (ICE; Caspase-1). Caspase-1 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and like other caspase inhibitors, interferes with the initiation of apoptosis and has numerous possible clinical applications
Each peptide comes complete with the following information:
a QC summary sheet
two reverse phase HPLC profiles to verify purity
mass spectrometry to verify molecular weight
amino acid analysis to verify composition
We use outside laboratories to provide the amino acid analysis and mass spectrometry. This third-party verification allows us to remain objective and has helped us achieve an excellent record of delivering top quality peptides since 1993.
