Gene: CASP8 (caspase 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CASP8
Name: caspase 8
RGD ID: 730846
Description: Exhibits several functions, including cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic signaling pathway; death effector domain binding activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to mechanical stimulus; proteolysis; and regulation of I-kappaB kinase/NF-kappaB signaling. Localizes to CD95 death-inducing signaling complex; nucleoplasm; and ripoptosome. Implicated in autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome type 2B; breast cancer; hepatocellular carcinoma; pancreatic cancer; and primary immunodeficiency disease. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
