Accession
GO:0008656
Name
cysteine-type endopeptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
caspase activator activity
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
Binds to and increases the rate of proteolysis catalyzed by a cysteine-type endopeptidase involved in the apoptotic process. Source: GOC:mah, GOC:mtg_apoptosis
Comment
Examples of this are 1) granzymes that may bind to initiator caspases and cleave them, and 2) already active caspases, e.g. caspase 9, that cleave effector caspases.
