Technical Data
Caspase 3 (Caspase-3, CASP3, CASP-3, Apopain, Cysteine Protease CPP32, CPP32, CPP-32, CPP32B, Protein Yama, SREBP Cleavage Activity 1, SCA-1)
This gene encodes a protein which is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family and is a downstream effector cysteine protease in the apoptotic pathway. It is made of two subunits, p20 and p11, which form the active complex. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. This protein cleaves and activates caspases 6, 7 and 9, and the protein itself is processed by caspases 8, 9 and 10. It is related to mammalian interleukin-1 converting enzyme (ICE) and to its Caenorhabditis elegans homologue, CED-3. It is the predominant caspase involved in the cleavage of amyloid-beta 4A precursor protein, which is associated with neuronal death in Alzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants that encode the same protein. It is ubiquitously expressed in normal Human tissues including the liver, spleen, heart, liver and kidney.
