Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis. The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a prodomain, and large and small catalytic subunits. The active forms of caspases are generated by several stimuli including ligand-receptor interactions, growth factor deprivation and inhibitors of cellular functions. All known caspases require cleavage adjacent to aspartates to liberate one large and one small subunit, which associate into a2b2 tetramer to form the active enzyme. Caspase-7 is derived from the cleavage of proMCH3-alpha into 2 subunits, p20 and p12 by Caspase-3. Sequence analysis revealed that the MCH3-alpha amino acid sequence had the highest homology to caspase-3 (53% identity) and less than 37% identity with all other family members.
