Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process; identical protein binding activity; and protease binding activity. Involved in activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process and extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway via death domain receptors. Predicted to localize to the PML body and mitochondrion. Orthologous to human CASP8AP2 (caspase 8 associated protein 2).
