Caspase 5, Human Recombinant


General description

Caspase-5 (also known as ICErelIII, TY) is a member of the caspase-family of cysteine proteases. Similar to other caspases, Caspase-5 exists in cells as an inactive proenzyme which is matured by proteolysis to yield large and small subunits. The active Caspase-5 is a heterotetrametric molecule consisting of two large and two small subunits. To date the mechanism of Caspase-5 activation and roles of Caspase-5 in apoptosis are poorly understood. The recombinant active human Caspase-5 was expressed in E. coli.
