Metacaspases are related to caspases and paracaspase [1]. The metacaspases are Arg/Lys - specific in contrast to Caspases that are Asp-specific[2]. Metacaspases are found in plants, fungi and "protists", but not in slime mold or animals. Analogously to caspases, metacaspases induce programmed cell death in both plants and fungi (yeast)[3][4] .
