CASP7

CASP7

A gene on chromosome 10q25 that encodes a protein belonging to the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family which, once activated by proteolytic processing, plays a central role in the execution phase of apoptosis. Effector (also called executioner) caspases CASP3, -6 and -7 are responsible for cleaving downstream substrates—CASP7 cleaves and activates sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). It is highly expressed in the lung, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen and heart.

The effects of gemcitabine and combination of FA and gemcitabine on expressions of genes are important in apoptosis including CASP3, CASP7, CASP8, CASP9, BCL2, BAX, FAS, CYCS, TNF and PPARG, and were determined using qPCR analysis, after total RNA isolation and cDNA synthesis from control and dose group cells.
After the treatment with a combination of FA and gemcitabine, significant increases in the expression of CASP3, CASP7, CASP8, FAS, CYCS, TNF and PPARG were observed as 13.55, 9.48, 23.83, 51.63, 10.34, 17.86 and 14.63 folds, respectively compared with the control group (p<0.05).

In addition, the expression of proapoptotic caspases (CASP3, CASP7, CASP8, and CASP9) is increased, while the expression of [Bcl.sub.2] (an antiapoptotic factor) is decreased in obesity [25].
The relationships of EPOR (erythropoietin receptor), MAPK14 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 1), BCL2L1 (BCL2-like1), KRT18 (keratin 18), PTPN6 (protein tyrosine phosphatase nonreceptor 6), CASP3 (caspase-3), TGFBR2 (transforming growth factor-beta, TGF[beta], type II receptor), AR (adrenergic receptor), and CASP7 (caspase-7) with gastric cancer were already known.
We used I-TASSER as the molecular modeling program because it was ranked as the best server for protein structure prediction in recent CASP7, CASP8, and CASP9 experiments [21, 23, 24].
Furthermore, we have observed the gene expression pattern of farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase (FDPS), farnesyl-diphosphate farnesyl transferase 1 (FDFT1), caspase 7 (CASP7), Rho family GTPase (RND3), Ras oncogene family member (RAB11A), and DNA methyl transferase 1 (DNMT1) in ALN treated and control Huh-7 cells.
