Summaries for CFLAR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CFLAR Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a regulator of apoptosis and is structurally similar to caspase-8. However, the encoded protein lacks caspase activity and appears to be itself cleaved into two peptides by caspase-8. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene, and partial evidence for several more variants exists. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CFLAR Gene

CFLAR (CASP8 And FADD Like Apoptosis Regulator) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFLAR include Choroid Plexus Papilloma and Malignant Glioma. Among its related pathways are Regulation of activated PAK-2p34 by proteasome mediated degradation and Regulation by c-FLIP. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and cysteine-type peptidase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CFLAR Gene

  • Apoptosis regulator protein which may function as a crucial link between cell survival and cell death pathways in mammalian cells. Acts as an inhibitor of TNFRSF6 mediated apoptosis. A proteolytic fragment (p43) is likely retained in the death-inducing signaling complex (DISC) thereby blocking further recruitment and processing of caspase-8 at the complex. Full length and shorter isoforms have been shown either to induce apoptosis or to reduce TNFRSF-triggered apoptosis. Lacks enzymatic (caspase) activity.
