Caspase 7, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase

Caspase 7, CASP7
This gene encodes a protein which is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. The precursor of this caspase is cleaved by caspase 3 and 10. It is activated upon cell death stimuli and induces apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in four transcript variants, encoding three distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on Caspase 7
The Inhibition of the Apoptosis Pathway by the Coxiella burnetii Effector Protein CaeA requires the EK Repetition Motif, but is Independent of Survivin.
Lührmann et al., Erlangen, Germany. In Virulence, Feb 2016
Ectopic expression of CaeA reduced extrinsic apoptosis and prevented the cleavage of the executioner caspase 7, but did not impair the activation of initiator caspase 9. CaeA expression resulted in an up-regulation of survivin (an inhibitor of activated caspases), which, however, was not causal for the anti-apoptotic effect of CaeA.
