  • RelevanceCaspase 12 is activated by ER stress, including disruption of ER calcium homeostasis and mediates ER stress-induced apoptosis. Caspase 12 is co-localized to the ER with several proteins that are involved in Alzheimers disease including gamma-secretase presenilin and beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP). Caspase 12 mediates cytotoxicity induced by amyloid-beta. It is ubiquitously expressed in mouse tissue.
