"Apoptosis was evaluated by staining lymphocytes with Annexin V+ antibody in Annexin V binding buffer for 15 minutes at room temperature, in the dark. Additionally, apoptosis was evaluated via caspase activity using FAM-FLICA Poly Caspase Assay kit (ImmunoChemistry Technologies) according to the manufacturer’s protocol."

"The bilateral cerebral cortex and hippocampus were mechanically isolated into a single-cell suspension by passage through a 40-μm cell strainer (Falcon, Madison, WI) on ice and placed in ice-cold PBS. Afterward, cells were labeled with a FAM-FLICA assay (Immunochemistry Technologies, Bloomington, MN) to detect the caspase-1 activity, in which the FLICA reagent known as FAM-YVAD-FMK forms an irreversible covalent bond with the fluoromethyl ketone (FMK) to the cleaved caspase-1. The carboxyfluorescein (FAM) optimally excites at 488–492 nm and has a peak emission at 515–535 nm."

"Cells were then fix with 100% methanol for 10 min and washed with PBS. The Fixed cells were stained with 1 μg/ml Hoechst 33342 (#639, Immunochemistry Technologies, MN, USA) for 1 h and washed twice with PBS. Cell number was determined by measuring fluorescence intensity in Excitation/Emission: 355 nm/460 nm using the multi plate reader (Infinite M200PRO)."
