CASP10(Caspase-10) is also named as MCH4 and belongs to the peptidase C14A family. It is recruited to the CD99 and p55 tumor necrosis factor receptor signaling complexes and promoting CD95 (APO1/Fas) apoptosis. It may also play a critical role in PTK7-knockdown-induced apoptosis, downstream of mitochondria(PMID:21103379). This protein can be Cleavage by granzyme B and autocatalytic activity generate two active subunits. Defects in CASP10 are the cause of autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome type 2A (ALPS2A)(PMID:16446975), familial non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)(PMID:12010812) and gastric cancer (GASC)(PMID:11973654). The full length has a propeptide with 219 amino acid and 6 isoforms produced by alternative splicing.
