activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in execution phase of apoptosis
Any process that initiates the activity of an inactive cysteine-type endopeptidase involved in the execution phase of apoptosis.
Note that this term should only be used to annotate gene products directly involved in the initiation or start up of an inactive cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in the execution phase of apoptosis (also known as an effector caspase). If the evidence provided is not sufficient to account for direct activation of this enzymatic activity, consider using the more generic terms GO:2001272 positive regulation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in execution phase of apoptosis or GO:0043280 positive regulation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process.
Synonyms are alternative words or phrases closely related in meaning to the term name, with indication of the relationship between the name and synonym given by the synonym scope.
