Protein

Caspase-4

Gene
CASP4, ICH2
Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 5 out of 5 - Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. Involved in ER-stress induced apoptosis. Cleaves caspase-1.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

Strict requirement for Asp at the P1 position. It has a preferred cleavage sequence of Tyr-Val-Ala-Asp-|- but also cleaves at Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-|-.1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by the effector protein NleF that is produced by pathogenic E.coli; this inhibits apoptosis.1 Publication
