Caspase-3 (Cysteine-aspartic acid protease 3/Casp3; also Yama, apopain and CPP32) is a 29 kDa heterodimer that belongs to the peptidase C14A family of enzymes. It is widely expressed, and considered to be the major executioner caspase in the apoptotic cascade. Human procaspase-3 is a 32 kDa, 277 amino acid (aa) protein and is normally an inactive homodimer. Following cell stress/activation, procaspase-3 undergoes proteolysis to generate an N-terminal 148 aa p17/17 kDa subunit (aa 29-175), plus a 102 aa C-terminal p12/12 kDa subunit. These subunits noncovalently heterodimerize, and associate with another p17/p12 heterodimer to form an active enzyme. There is one potential variant that shows an alternative start site nine aa upstream of the standard start site coupled with a 21 aa substitution for aa 162-277. Over aa 29-175, human and mouse caspase-3 share 87% aa identity.
