Gene: Casp8 (caspase 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Casp8
Name: caspase 8
Description: Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; death receptor binding activity; and tumor necrosis factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including response to estradiol; response to ethanol; and response to lipopolysaccharide. Localizes to several cellular components, including CD95 death-inducing signaling complex; cell body; and membrane raft. Used to study pre-malignant neoplasm. Biomarker of several diseases, including heart disease (multiple); kidney disease (multiple); retinal detachment; sciatic neuropathy; and status epilepticus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome type 2B; breast cancer; hepatocellular carcinoma; pancreatic cancer; and primary immunodeficiency disease. Orthologous to human CASP8 (caspase 8); PARTICIPATES IN FasL mediated signaling pathway; ceramide signaling pathway; extrinsic apoptotic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-lipoic acid; (R)-noradrenaline; (S)-colchicine.
Type: protein-coding
