Gene information for FAF1 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID11124
Official gene symbolFAF1
Full nameFas (TNFRSF6) associated factor 1
Gene summaryInteraction of Fas ligand (TNFSF6) with the FAS antigen (TNFRSF6) mediates programmed cell death, also called apoptosis, in a number of organ systems. The protein encoded by this gene binds to FAS antigen and can initiate apoptosis or enhance apoptosis initiated through FAS antigen. Initiation of apoptosis by the protein encoded by this gene requires a ubiquitin-like domain but not the FAS-binding domain. [provided by RefSeq]
