Abstract

We induced apoptosis in Jurkat cell cultures and measured the DEVDase (caspase-3/7) activity using the Apo-ONE™ Homogeneous Caspase-3/7 Assay (Cat.# G7790, G7791). Total RNA was isolated from apoptotic and control cell cultures using the SV Total RNA Isolation System (Cat.# Z3100). This RNA provided the template for cDNA synthesis and gene-specific amplification using the ImProm-II™ Reverse Transcription System (Cat.# A3800). Together, these reagents allow a "systems approach" for studying apoptosis—from gene expression to cellular events.

Cell Notes 2, 4–6.
