Tetracosactide is a synthetic peptide, which corresponds to the first 24 amino acids of the naturally occurring hormone ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). It stimulates the adrenal cortex to produce corticosteroids, mineralocorticoids, and, to a lesser extent, androgens.

ExplanationAc-WEHD-AFC is a fluorogenic substrate that can be cleaved by group I caspases (caspase-1, -4, and -5).1 Caspase activity can be quantified by fluorescent detection of free AFC (also known as 7-amino-4-trifluoromethylcoumarin), which is excited at 400 nm and emits at 505 nm.
Synonyms/AliasCaspase 1 (ICE) Substrate 3f; fluorogenic, Ac-WEHD-AFC; N-Acetyl-L-tryptophyl-L-alpha-glutamyl-L-histidyl-N-[2-oxo-4-(trifluoromethyl)-2H-1-benzopyran-7-yl]-L-alpha-asparagine;
