ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Alternative Name(s)
apoptotic protease Mch-4.
FAS-associated death domain protein interleukin-1beta-converting enzyme 2.
ICE-like apoptotic protease 4.
Reaction catalysed
Strict requirement for Asp at position P1 and has a preferred cleavage sequence of Leu-Gln-Thr-Asp-|-Gly
  • Caspase-10 is an initiator caspase, as are caspase-2 (EC, caspase-8 (EC and caspase-9 (EC
  • Like caspase-8, it contains two tandem death effector domains (DEDs) in its N-terminal prodomain, which play a role in procaspase activation.
  • Has many overlapping substrates in common with caspase-8, such as RIP (the cleavage of which impairs NF-kappaB survival signaling and starts the cell-death process) and PAK2 (associated with some of the morphological features of apoptosis, such as cell rounding and apoptotic body formation).
  • Bid, a Bcl2 protein, can be cleaved by caspase-3 (EC, caspase-8 and caspase-10 at Lys-Gln-Thr-Asp-|- to yield the pro- apoptotic p15 fragment.
  • The p15 fragment is N-myristoylated and enhances cytochrome c release from mitochondria (which initiatiates the intrinsic apoptosis pathway).
  • Bid can be further cleaved by caspase-10 and granzyme B but not by caspase-3 and caspase-8 at Ile-Glu-Thr-Asp-|- to yield a p13 fragment that is not N-myristoylated.
  • Belongs to peptidase family C14.
