CLAN (NLR Family CARD Domain-containing Protein 4, CARD, LRR, and NACHT-containing Protein, Clan Protein, Caspase Recruitment Domain-containing Protein 12, Ice Protease-activating Factor, Ipaf, NLRC4, CARD12, CLAN1, IPAF, UNQ6189/PRO20215)
Description:
Apoptosis is related to many diseases and induced by a family of cell death receptors and their ligands. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain containing adaptor molecules and proteases including several members of the caspase family. Another family of proteins that functions as a critical regulator of apoptosis and NF-kB signaling pathways is the CED-4/Apaf-1 (apoptosis protein activating factor-1) protein family. Ipaf (ICE protease activating factor) is a CED-4/Apaf-1 family member that activates caspase-1/ICE and can induce apoptosis in human cells in a caspase-1 dependent manner. Ipaf and caspase-1 are thought to interact with each other through the association of the Ipaf amino-terminal CARD (caspase recruitment domain) and amino-terminal CARD of caspase-1.
