Regulated proteolysis plays an important role in modulating the activities of receptors, cytoskeletal proteins and transcription factors during cell growth and development. A family of calcium-regulated thiol proteases, known as calpains, has been shown to promote this process in mammals, and other eukaryotes. The importance of calpains is highlighted through their involvement in a number of pathologies in humans.
