This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein that initiates apoptosis. This protein contains several copies of the WD-40 domain a caspase recruitment domain (CARD) and an ATPase domain (NB-ARC). Upon binding cytochrome c and dATP this protein forms an oligomeric apoptosome. The apoptosome binds and cleaves caspase 9 preproprotein releasing its mature activated form. Activated caspase 9 stimulates the subsequent caspase cascade that commits the cell to apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in several transcript variants encoding different isoforms.
