|Official Full Name||caspase 4, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase|
|Background||This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes composed of a prodomain and a large and small protease subunit. Activation of caspases requires proteolytic processing at conserved internal aspartic residues to generate a heterodimeric enzyme consisting of the large and small subunits. This caspase is able to cleave and activate its own precursor protein, as well as caspase 1 precursor. When overexpressed, this gene induces cell apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.|

casp4 has several biochemical functions, for example, NOT cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in execution phase of apoptosis. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by casp4 itself. We selected most functions casp4 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with casp4. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
