|Other Names||FAS-associated death domain protein, FAS-associating death domain-containing protein, Growth-inhibiting gene 3 protein, Mediator of receptor induced toxicity, Protein FADD, FADD, MORT1|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Apoptotic adaptor molecule that recruits caspase-8 or caspase-10 to the activated Fas (CD95) or TNFR-1 receptors. The resulting aggregate called the death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) performs caspase-8 proteolytic activation. Active caspase-8 initiates the subsequent cascade of caspases mediating apoptosis. Involved in interferon-mediated antiviral immune response, playing a role in the positive regulation of interferon signaling.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in a wide variety of tissues, except for peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes|

The protein encoded by this gene is an adaptor moleculethat interacts with various cell surface receptors and mediatescell apoptotic signals. Through its C-terminal death domain, thisprotein can be recruited by TNFRSF6/Fas-receptor, tumor necrosisfactor receptor, TNFRSF25, and TNFSF10/TRAIL-receptor, and thus itparticipates in the death signaling initiated by these receptors.Interaction of this protein with the receptors unmasks theN-terminal effector domain of this protein, which allows it torecruit caspase-8, and thereby activate the cysteine proteasecascade. Knockout studies in mice also suggest the importance ofthis protein in early T cell development.
