MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the cysteine proteases that plays important roles in regulating apoptosis and neurodegeneration. The encoded protein is involved in the transmission of pain and axonal degeneration. Genetic deletion of this gene in mice results in the delay of axon pruning and protects from axon degeneration. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit failure to induce increased lysis of fluorogenic substrate VEID-AMC in staurosporine treated of lenses. Mice homozygous for a different knock-out allele exhibit resistance to excitotoxicity and axonal degeneration. [provided by MGI curators]
