Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis. The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a prodomain, and large and small catalytic subunits. The active forms of caspases are generated by several stimuli including ligand-receptor interactions, growth factor deprivation and inhibitors of cellular functions. All known caspases require cleavage adjacent to aspartates to liberate one large and one small subunit, which associate into a2b2 tetramer to form the active enzyme.

May we ask the MW difference between the active form and the proform of Caspase 8 while performing WB?
In treated cells induced to undergo apoptosis, caspase-8 migrates as a 55/53 kDa (pro-form), 41/42 kDa (a cleaved/active or intermediate form), and 18 kDa (active form). The proform (55/53 kDa) is still seen in treated cells because not all cells undergo apoptosis at once.
Caspase 3, the executioner of apoptosis Caspase-3 enzyme is a member of the family of endoproteases which regulate inflammation and apoptosis signaling networks. Caspase-3 is known as an executioner caspase in apoptosis because of its role in coordinating the destruction of cellular stru... Read full blog post.
Caspase 8 - a key mediator of apoptosis Programmed cell death via apoptosis is a key controlled physiological process instigated by the cell death receptor family, their ligands, and the caspase cysteine protease family. All caspases exist in a precursor form that contains a prodomain, a... Read full blog post.
