Elevated cathepsin enzyme activity can often signify a number of cathepsin-mediated diseases such as Alzheimer’s, numerous types of cancer, autioimmune-related diseases, and osteoporosis. ICT offers a line of Magic Red cathepsin detection reagents that allow researchers to watch cultured cells undergo apoptosis in real time. In this presentation, we’ll explore the role of cathepsins in cancer research and learn how to quantify and monitor intracellular cathepsin B, K, or L activity over time in vitro.
