  • Function
    Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. Cleaves caspase-1.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed, with highest levels in spleen and lung. Moderate expression in heart and liver, low expression in skeletal muscle, kidney and testis. Not found in the brain.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase C14A family.
    Contains 1 CARD domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The two subunits are derived from the precursor sequence by an autocatalytic mechanism or by cleavage by Caspase-8.
  • Information by UniProt
