caspase-9

Cat No.
EXWM-4238
Description
Caspase-9 is an initiator caspase, as are caspase -2 (EC 3.4.22.55), caspase-8 (EC 3.4.22.61) and caspase-10 (EC 3.4.22.63). Caspase-9 contains a caspase-recruitment domain (CARD) in its N-terminal prodomain, which plays a role in procaspase activation. An alternatively spliced version of caspase-9 also exists, caspase-9S, that inhibits apoptosis, similar to the situation found with caspase-2. Phosphorylation of caspase-9 from some species by Akt, a serine-threonine protein kinase, inhibits caspase activity in vitro and caspase activation in vivo. The activity of caspase-9 is increased dramatically upon association with the apoptosome but the enzyme can be activated without proteolytic cleavage. Procaspase-3 is the enzyme's physiological substrate. Belongs in peptidase family C14.
