Belongs to the peptidase C14A family.
Expressed at higher levels in the embryonic lung, liver and kidney than in the heart and brain. In adults, higher level expression is seen in the placenta, lung, kidney, and pancreas than in the heart, brain, liver and skeletal muscle.
The mature protease can process its own propeptide, but not that of other caspases.

Caspase-2 (Nedd2, ICH-1) is an aspartate-specific cysteine protease that is activated in response to various apoptotic stimuli. Caspase-2 is unique among the caspases in that it has features of both upstream caspases (long prodomain) and downstream caspases (DEXD substrate specificity). Caspase-2 is highly expressed in the brain during development, and is expressed at low levels in adult tissue. Specifically, caspase-2 localizes to the mitochondria, the Golgi, the cytoplasm, and the nucleus. Caspase-2 exists as two isoforms, caspase-2L and caspase-2S, which are produced by alternative splicing and differ in their N and C-termini. Caspase-2L acts as a positive regulator of apoptosis, whereas caspase-2S functions as a negative regulator of apoptosis. Following apoptotic stimuli, the caspase-2L precursor undergoes cleavage at Asp-153 to produce a fragment (p30). The p30 fragment undergoes further cleavage to generate a fragment containing amino acids 153-308 (p18) and a fragment containing amino acids 317-435 (p13 or p14). As apoptosis progresses, the p13 (p14) fragment can undergo further processing to yield a fragment containing amino acids 331-435 (p12).
