CASPASES -
Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are particularly well known for their role in apoptosis. Caspases are translated as inactive zymogen precursor proteins. Initiator caspases have a large prodomain, and are cleaved to yield active enzyme in response to proapoptotic stimuli. Initiator caspases cleave and active effector (or executioner) caspases which cleave the substrates leading to programmed cell death. (Adapted from FBrf0215539).

Additional Descriptive Data
Decay transcripts are expressed at low levels throughout embryogenesis. In early stages the transcript is ubiquitously distributed. At later stages, it is prominant in the gut. In third instar larvae, high levels of Decay transcripts are observed in salivary glands and midgut. Low levels are present throughout eye imaginal discs and brain lobes. Decay transcripts are present throughout oogenesis with elevated levels in stage 10 nurse cells. Transcripts disappear from stage 12 nurse cells that have initiated apoptosis and are present at high levels in the oocyte. No up-regulation of Decay expression is observed in ecdysone-treated salivary glands.
