|Official Full Name||caspase 6, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase|
|Background||This gene encodes a protein which 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 which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. This protein is processed by caspases 7, 8 and 10, and is thought to function as a downstream enzyme in the caspase activation cascade. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants that encode different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]|

casp6 has several biochemical functions, for example, cysteine-type endopeptidase activity, cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in execution phase of apoptosis, cysteine-type peptidase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by casp6 itself. We selected most functions casp6 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with casp6. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
