Two new probes for the detection of calpain I activity based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer technology have been synthesized and evaluated. The probes incorporated the cleavage site present in α-spectrin, a naturally occurring substrate of calpain I. The design of the internally quenched substrates is such that the calpain-sensitive bond of the peptides (between the Tyr-Gly residues) is located centrally between the donor and the quencher chromophores. The calpain assay protocol is capable of detecting enzymatic activity in the nanomolar region.
