Figure 1

The sequence and the domain organization of caspase from starfish A. pectinifera. (a) Amino acid sequence of starfish caspase. The conserved active peptide region is underlined (green). The amino acids in red indicate the cleavage sites. (b) The domain organization of starfish caspase. The 1356 nt open reading frame (ORF) of starfish caspase encodes a protein of 452 aa, which exhibits a typical caspase-9 domain architecture containing amino terminal CARD (residues 1–92), large subunit (residues 180–318), and small subunit (residues 357–452).
