26582949 Expression of caspase-12 was linked to decreased systemic and adipose tissue inflammation in a cohort of African American obese children.
26261584 Endoplasmic reticulum stress related factor ATF6 and caspase-12 trigger apoptosis in neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.
25503380 We found that RNA interference-induced Caspase-12 silencing increased NOD1, hBD1 and hBD2 expression
24586588 conclude that the functional CASP12L allele is not a marker for susceptibility and/or severity of CAP
24515649 Distribution of CASP12 alleles (#rs497116) in African-Americans (AA) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). There was no difference in the overall distribution of genotypes within AA with RA, but homozygous patients had lower baseline joint-narrowing scores.
24224909 EtOH-induced activation of caspase-12 could be one of the underlying mechanisms of hepatocyte apoptosis.
21872999 examines the role that CASP12 plays in down-regulating inflammation, we hypothesize that pathogens which exploit the inflammatory response are restrained by an active CASP12 gene product
21706251 CASPASE-12 does not influence the susceptibility to Candida sepsis, nor has any effect on the serum cytokine concentrations in Candida sepsis patients during the course of infection.
20646990 Constitutively active forms of caspase-12 (rev-Deltapro1 and rev-Deltapro2) could induce cell death in cells transfected with the corresponding expression vectors.

20299359 Reactive oxygen species promote caspase-12 expression and tubular apoptosis in diabetic nephropathy.
20041182 The calcium-calpain-caspase-12-caspase-3 cascade is altered in F508del-CFTR expressing cells.
19721713 the NOD2/RIP2 pathway has a role in recognition of Yersinia, but caspase-12 does not modulate innate host defense against Y. pestis

18791174 hRPE cells express a high level of caspase-12S. The regulated expression of caspase-12S suggests that this caspase recruitment domain (CARD)-only protein may be an endogenous dominant negative regulator that modulates inflammatory responses in hRPE cells.
18332441 proteolytic activity of caspase-12 is confined to its own proenzyme
