General description

Z-VAD-FMK inhibits yeast and mammalian peptide N-glycanase (PNGase). It induces apoptosis. Z-VAD-FMK might be associated with endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress.

Application

Z-VAD-FMK has been used:
  • to induce mixed-lineage kinase domain-like (MLKL) phosphorylation (p-MLKL) in L929 cells
  • to induce autophagy in Jurkat and K562 cells
  • to revert killing effects of oxaliplatin or oxaliplatin combination with chloroquine (CQ) on HCT116 and SW620 cell lines
  • as a caspase inhibitor to inhibit apoptosis and assess nuclear factor-kB, heat shock protein 70 (Hsp 70), proto-oncogene (cmyc) and tumor suppressor protein p53

Biochem/physiol Actions

Non-selective, cell permeable inhibitor of caspase-1- and caspase-3-related proteases.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death (PCD), is a selective process for the removal of unnecessary, infected or transformed cells in various biological systems. As it plays a role in the homeostasis of multicellular organisms, apoptosis is tightly regulated through two principal pathways by a number of regulatory and effector molecules.

n proliferating cells, the cell cycle consists of four phases. Gap 1 (G1) is the interval between mitosis and DNA replication that is characterized by cell growth. Replication of DNA occurs during the synthesis (S) phase, which is followed by a second gap phase (G2) during which growth and preparation for cell division occurs. Together, these three stages comprise the interphase phase of the cell cycle. Interphase is followed by the mitotic (M) phase.
