Apoptosis related cysteine protease
Caspase 14 apoptosis related cysteine protease
Caspase 14 precursor
Caspase-14 subunit p10
FunctionBelieved to be a non-apoptotic caspase which is involved in epidermal differentiation. Seems to play a role in keratinocyte differentiation and cornification. Probably regulates maturation of the epidermis by proteolytically processing filaggrin.
Tissue specificityExpressed in keratinocytes of adult skin suprabasal layers (from spinous layers to the stratum granulosum and stratum corneum) (at protein level). Expressed in keratinocytes of hair shaft and sebaceous glands (at protein level). In psoriatic skin only expressed at very low levels.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C14A family.
