Caspase 14, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase

This gene encodes 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. This caspase has been shown to be processed and activated by caspase 8 and caspase 10 in vitro, and by anti-Fas agonist antibody or TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand in vivo. The expression and processing of this caspase may be involved in keratinocyte terminal differentiation, which is important for the formation of the skin barrier.

In this study, we demonstrated that the overexpression of S100A7 in A431 cells significantly promoted cell proliferation in vitro and tumor growth in vivo, whereas it suppressed the expression of GATA-3, caspase-14 and three squamous differentiation markers, keratin-1, TG-1 and involucrin.

Afaq et al., Birmingham, United States. In Br J Dermatol, Feb 2015
We have shown that treatment of reconstituted human skin with delphinidin, an anthocyanidin, present in pigmented fruits and vegetables, increased the expression and processing of caspase-14, which is involved in cornification.
In a three-dimensional reconstructed human epidermis filaggrin-2 is essential for proper cornification.
