N-Ac-Tyr-Val-Ala-Asp-CHO (Ac-YVAD-CHO) is a synthetic peptide that reversibly and selectively inhibits interleukin-1β converting enzyme (ICE; Caspase-1). Caspase-1 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and like other caspase inhibitors, interferes with the initiation of apoptosis and has numerous possible clinical applications
