Z-Asp-CH2-DCB is an inhibitor of ICE/Ced-3 family proteases .
Caspases (ICE/ Ced3 proteases) play key biological roles in inflammation and mammalian apoptosis. Caspases are a closely related family of cysteine proteases that play a key role in apoptotic cell death. Activation of Caspases shows important roles in programmed cell death such as pyroptosis and necroptosis to protect cells from stress signals and pathogenic attack. Caspases play an important role in inflammation. Caspases have also been involved in cell proliferation, cell differentiation, tumour suppression, neural development and axon guidance and ageing. Deficiency in caspase results in tumour development. Overactivation of some caspases can lead to excessive programmed cell death, such as caspase-3 .
Z-Asp-CH2-DCB blocked apoptosis in U937 cells triggered by antitumor agents. Z-Asp-CH2-DCB also blocked apoptosis in IFN-γ-pretreated cells. Z-Asp-CH2 -DCB completely inhibited DNA fragmentation induced by γ-irradiation, antitumor agents, or anti-Fas antibody .
