|Official Full Name||caspase 2, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase|
|Background||This gene encodes a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Caspases mediate cellular apoptosis through the proteolytic cleavage of specific protein substrates. The encoded protein may function in stress-induced cell death pathways, cell cycle maintenance, and the suppression of tumorigenesis. Increased expression of this gene may play a role in neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease and temporal lobe epilepsy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.|

casp2 has several biochemical functions, for example, cysteine-type endopeptidase activity, cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic signaling pathway, enzyme binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by casp2 itself.
