I have tested apoptotic activity for Cisplatin againts HeLa cells using RayBio® Human Apoptosis Antibody Array Kit.
The results is confusing where expression of p53 and caspase 3 decreases overtime but level of XiAP decreases dramatically.
So, does it shows apoptosis?
Cisplatin affect of HeLa

Cisplatin should increase p53 expression and decrease XIAP expression, while increasing the amount of cleaved caspase-3. Based on the Raybiotech website, it seems they're array is detecting the apoptosis-induced cleavage product of caspase-3: http://www.raybiotec...rays/ although you should try to confirm that their antibody isn't detecting full-length and cleaved forms. I suspect you are studying "noise".
