The caspase family of cysteine proteases play a key role in apoptosis. Caspase 3 (also known as CPP32, YAMA and apopain) is the most extensively studied apoptotic protein among caspase family members. Caspase 3 is synthesized as inactive pro-enzyme that is processed in cells undergoing apoptosis by self-proteolysis and/or cleavage by other upstream proteases (e.g. caspases 8, 9 and 10). The processed form of caspase 3 consists of large (17kD) and small (12kD) subunits which associate to form an active enzyme. Caspase 3 is cleaved at Asp28 - Ser29 and Asp175 - Ser176. The active caspase 3 proteolytically cleaves and activates other caspases (e.g. caspases 6, 7 and 9), as well as relevant targets in the cells (e.g. PARP and DFF).
