My gene of interest results in reduced growth rate compared to non-transfced parental cell line. Furthermore, transient transfection of my gene resukts in enhanced cleaved PARP.
I want to study if teh reduced cell proliferation is due to apoptpsis, what would be teh best way to approach this?
I'm thinking of using Caspase Inhibitor Z-VAD-FMK. Has anyone used this? Also, this kit inhibits caspas but the user has to carry out standard apoptosis assay to measure the level of aopotosis. I;m not not what approach to take?
Any ideas would be welcomed.
