CASP3

(redirected from CPP32)

CASP3

A gene on chromosome 4q34 that encodes a so-called effector caspase 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, as well as various stages of embryological development. CASP3 is highly expressed in the lung, spleen, heart, liver and kidney.
