Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CAPN14 Gene
Calpains are a family of cytosolic calcium-activated cysteine proteases involved in a variety of cellular processes including apoptosis, cell division, modulation of integrin-cytoskeletal interactions, and synaptic plasticity (Dear et al., 2000 [PubMed 10964513]). CAPN14 belongs to the calpain large subunit family.[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CAPN14 Gene
CAPN14 (Calpain 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis Pathway and Degradation of the extracellular matrix. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and calcium-dependent cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CAPN3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAPN14 Gene
Calcium-regulated non-lysosomal thiol-protease.
Calpains are a group of calcium-sensitive cysteine proteases that are ubiquitously expressed in mammals. Structurally, calpains contain two subunits; an 80 kDa catalytic subunit and a 28 kDa regulatory subunit that functions as a chaperone to stabilize the 80 kDa structure.
