|Function||Serine/threonine-protein kinase that acts as a regulatory link between the membrane-associated Ras GTPases and the MAPK/ERK cascade, and this critical regulatory link functions as a switch determining cell fate decisions including proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, survival and oncogenic transformation. RAF1 activation initiates a mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade that comprises a sequential phosphorylation of the dual-specific MAPK kinases (MAP2K1/MEK1 and MAP2K2/MEK2) and the extracellular signal-regulated kinases (MAPK3/ERK1 and MAPK1/ERK2). The phosphorylated form of RAF1 (on residues Ser-338 and Ser-339, by PAK1) phosphorylates BAD/Bcl2- antagonist of cell death at 'Ser-75'. Phosphorylates adenylyl cyclases: ADCY2, ADCY5 and ADCY6, resulting in their activation. Phosphorylates PPP1R12A resulting in inhibition of the phosphatase activity. Phosphorylates TNNT2/cardiac muscle troponin T. Can promote NF-kB activation and inhibit signal transducers involved in motility (ROCK2), apoptosis (MAP3K5/ASK1 and STK3/MST2), proliferation and angiogenesis (RB1). Can protect cells from apoptosis also by translocating to the mitochondria where it binds BCL2 and displaces BAD/Bcl2-antagonist of cell death. Regulates Rho signaling and migration, and is required for normal wound healing. Plays a role in the oncogenic transformation of epithelial cells via repression of the TJ protein, occludin (OCLN) by inducing the up-regulation of a transcriptional repressor SNAI2/SLUG, which induces down-regulation of OCLN. Restricts caspase activation in response to selected stimuli, notably Fas stimulation, pathogen-mediated macrophage apoptosis, and erythroid differentiation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Mitochondrion. Nucleus. Note=Colocalizes with RGS14 and BRAF in both the cytoplasm and membranes. Phosphorylation at Ser-259 impairs its membrane accumulation. Recruited to the cell membrane by the active Ras protein. Phosphorylation at Ser-338 and Ser-339 by PAK1 is required for its mitochondrial localization. Retinoic acid- induced Ser-621 phosphorylated form of RAF1 is predominantly localized at the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||In skeletal muscle, isoform 1 is more abundant than isoform 2.|

Human Raf1 is a proto-oncogene-encoded 74 kDa kinase that serves as an upstream activator of Mek1 by phosphorylating Ser-218 and Ser-222 in the MAP kinase kinase (Mek1). It has also been implicated in the phosphorylation and activation of the cdc2 tyrosine phosphatase cdc25. Raf1 binds to the GTP-bound form of the Ras G-protein via an N-terminal domain in Raf-1. Raf-1 is activated upon phosphorylation by protein kinase C, Src and ceramide-activated protein kinase. Raf-1 is highly related to the A-Raf and B-Raf isoforms within the N-terminal G-protein binding domain (CR1), phosphorylation site domain (CR2) and the catalytic domain (CR3). Raf-1 physically interacts with Ras, RapIB, MEK1, the 14-3-3 family of proteins and the molecular chaperones hsp90 and p50.
