Gene: Casp3 (caspase 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Casp3
Name: caspase 3
Description: Exhibits several functions, including death receptor binding activity; phospholipase A2 activator activity; and protease binding activity. Involved in several processes, including luteolysis; nervous system development; and positive regulation of amyloid-beta formation. Localizes to several cellular components, including death-inducing signaling complex; membrane raft; and neuronal cell body. Used to study artery disease (multiple); brain glioma; cerebrovascular disease (multiple); and pre-malignant neoplasm. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); heart disease (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); and neuropathy (multiple). Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Parkinson's disease; colon cancer; and lung non-small cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human CASP3 (caspase 3); PARTICIPATES IN intrinsic apoptotic pathway; extrinsic apoptotic pathway; FasL mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (+)-artemisinin; (+)-pilocarpine.
Type: protein-coding
