Gene: CASP3 (caspase 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CASP3
Name: caspase 3
Description: Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic signaling pathway and cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in execution phase of apoptosis. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to staurosporine; neurotrophin TRK receptor signaling pathway; and positive regulation of amyloid-beta formation. Localizes to cytosol and nucleus. Implicated in Parkinson's disease; colon cancer; and lung non-small cell carcinoma. Biomarker of several diseases, including breast cancer (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and severe acute respiratory syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
