  • Function
    Oligomeric Apaf-1 mediates the cytochrome c-dependent autocatalytic activation of pro-caspase-9 (Apaf-3), leading to the activation of caspase-3 and apoptosis. This activation requires ATP. Isoform 6 is less effective in inducing apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitous. Highest levels of expression in adult spleen and peripheral blood leukocytes, and in fetal brain, kidney and lung. Isoform 1 is expressed in heart, kidney and liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 CARD domain.
    Contains 1 NB-ARC domain.
    Contains 13 WD repeats.
  • Domain
    The CARD domain mediates interaction with APIP.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm.
  • Information by UniProt
