Biochem/physiol Actions

An apoptosis adapter molecule enabling transduction of the apoptosis signal initiated via the FasL/Fas receptor interaction. It contains a carboxy-terminal death domain, which interacts with the Fas receptor death domain while its NH2-terminal contains a death effector domain (DED) recruiting caspase-8 to the death inducing signaling complex (DISC) thus initiating apoptotic caspase cascade.
Recently FADD was implicated in non-apoptotic cellular pathways, such as the regulation of cell cycle machinery in T lymphocytes, which was found to be connected to its phosphorylation state, and the FasL/TRAIL-induced transcriptional activation of c-fos protooncogene.
FADD was also found to interact with hepatitis C virus core protein in HEK-293 cell line.
