"... 2 × 10^5 cells/well (24-well plate) prior to infection with S. typhimurium or treatment with anthrax lethal toxin. Active caspase-1 was detected using a caspase-1-specific probe. FAM-YVAD-FMK (Immunochemistry Technologies) was added to a final concentration of 5 μM for the last 60 min of treatment. Cells were washed twice to remove unbound probe, then fixed and stained with the nuclear..."
