CASP10 (human)

CASP10 Involved in the activation cascade of caspases responsible for apoptosis execution. Recruited to both Fas- and TNFR-1 receptors in a FADD dependent manner. May participate in the granzyme B apoptotic pathways. Cleaves and activates caspase- 3, -4, -6, -7, -8, and -9. Hydrolyzes the small- molecule substrates, Tyr-Val-Ala-Asp-|-AMC and Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-|-AMC. Heterotetramer that consists of two anti-parallel arranged heterodimers, each one formed by a 23/17 kDa (p23/17) (depending on the splicing events) and a 12 kDa (p12) subunit. Self-associates. Interacts with FADD and CASP8. Found in a Fas signaling complex consisting of FAS, FADD, CASP8 and CASP10. Detectable in most tissues. Lowest expression is seen in brain, kidney, prostate, testis and colon. Belongs to the peptidase C14A family. 6 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
