Disease [+] 3 Target-related Diseases +
1 Colorectal cancer [ICD-11: 2B91]
2 Solid tumour/cancer [ICD-11: 2A00-2F9Z]
3 Liver cancer [ICD-11: 2C12]
The adapter molecule FADD recruits caspase-8 to the activated receptor. The resulting death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) performs caspase-8 proteolytic activation which initiates the subsequent cascade of caspases (aspartate-specific cysteine proteases) mediating apoptosis. Promotes the activation of NF-kappa-B. Essential for ER stress-induced apoptosis. Receptor for the cytotoxic ligand TNFSF10/TRAIL.
