Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CRADD Gene
This gene encodes a protein containing a death domain (DD) motif. This protein recruits caspase 2/ICH1 to the cell death signal transduction complex, which includes tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1A) and RIPK1/RIP kinase, and acts in promoting apoptosis. A mutation in this gene was associated with mental retardation. A related pseudogene is found on chromosome 3. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for CRADD Gene
CRADD (CASP2 And RIPK1 Domain Containing Adaptor With Death Domain) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CRADD include Mental Retardation, Autosomal Recessive 34 and Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis and survival Caspase cascade and TWEAK Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protease binding and death domain binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CRADD Gene
Apoptotic adaptor molecule specific for caspase-2 and FASL/TNF receptor-interacting protein RIP. In the presence of RIP and TRADD, CRADD recruits caspase-2 to the TNFR-1 signalling complex.
