"ATP (Sigma) at 5 mM was added for 20 min, followed by incubation with FAM-FLICA Caspase-1 substrate (ImmunoChemistry Technologies) for 2 h at 37 °C according to manufacturer instructions. After red blood cell lysis and staining with anti-human CD14-APC (Miltenyi Biotec) for 15 min at +4 °C, the cells were analyzed using BD Accuri C6 flow cytometer (BD Biosciences..."

Mulhern CM, Hong Y, Omoyinmi E, Jacques TS, D'Arco F, Hemingway C, Brogan PA, Eleftheriou D. Janus kinase 1/2 inhibition for the treatment of autoinflammation associated with heterozygous TNFAIP3 mutation. J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2019 Jun 5. pii: S0091-6749(19)30745-6. doi: 10.1016/j.jaci.2019.05.026. Full Text 

"PBMCs were seeded in a 96-well plate at a density of 1.6 × 105 cells/well (8.0 × 105 cells/mL). Relevant wells were primed with 100 ng/mL LPS for 4 hours and, if required, then stimulated with 10 mmol/L ATP for 30 minutes. Caspase-1 activity was measured by using FLICA (ImmunoChemistry Technologies, Bloomington, Minn), a cell-permeable fluorescent probe (FAM-YVAD-FMK) that binds active caspase-1. Cells were incubated for 1 hour with FLICA at 37°C and stained with phycoerythrin (PE)–conjugated anti-CD14 (BD, Franklin Lakes, NJ) to identify monocytes. Cells were subsequently analyzed for the frequency of CD14+FLICA+ cells."

"... in CD16−/+/++ monocytes using the monoclonal anti-P2X7 L4 clone conjugated with APC62. Active caspase-1 was measured in monocytes using the specific fluorescent probe FLICA-660 Caspase-1 Assay Kit (Immunochemistry Technologies) following the manufacturer’s instructions. Production of ROS was measured in monocytes using the red mitochondrial superoxide indicator MitoSOX (Life Technologies) following the manufacturer's instructions."

"...1 hour to label all active GCase containing lysosomes, or with MDW933 (500 nM) applied only on the soma compartment for 15 min followed by varying washing times in NFM as indicated to label active GCase containing lysosomes delivered to distal axons. MDW933 labeled neurons were fixed and immunolabeled for b3-Tubulin as described above. For live imaging, neurons were incubated in NFM containing the various probes for 30 min at 37C, followed by 3 washes with NFM. For labeling lysosomal cargo degradation in axons, Magic Red Cathepsin B/L fluorogenic substrates (1:4,000, ImmunoChemistry Technologies) were applied to the axonal chamber for 30 min at 37C to monitor Cathepsin B/L-mediated degradation."
