|Other Names||Caspase-3, CASP-3, Apopain, Cysteine protease CPP32, CPP-32, Protein Yama, SREBP cleavage activity 1, SCA-1, Caspase-3 subunit p17, Caspase-3 subunit p12, CASP3, CPP32|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. At the onset of apoptosis it proteolytically cleaves poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) at a '216-Asp-|-Gly-217' bond. Cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) between the basic helix-loop- helix leucine zipper domain and the membrane attachment domain. Cleaves and activates caspase-6, -7 and -9. Involved in the cleavage of huntingtin. Triggers cell adhesion in sympathetic neurons through RET cleavage.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney. Moderate levels in brain and skeletal muscle, and low in testis. Also found in many cell lines, highest expression in cells of the immune system|

This gene encodes a protein which is a member of thecysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequentialactivation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phaseof cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes whichundergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues toproduce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form theactive enzyme. This protein cleaves and activates caspases 6, 7 and9, and the protein itself is processed by caspases 8, 9 and 10. Itis the predominant caspase involved in the cleavage of amyloid-beta4A precursor protein, which is associated with neuronal death inAlzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing of this gene results intwo transcript variants that encode the same protein. [provided byRefSeq].
