Description
Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; enzyme activator activity; and lipopolysaccharide binding activity. Involved in defense response to bacterium; positive regulation of apoptotic process; and pyroptosis. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including digestive system; heart; immune system; integument; and muscle. Orthologous to human CASP4 (caspase 4) and CASP5 (caspase 5).
