Summaries for FASTK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FASTK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family. This kinase was shown to be activated rapidly during Fas-mediated apoptosis in Jurkat cells. In response to Fas receptor ligation, it phosphorylates TIA1, an apoptosis-promoting nuclear RNA-binding protein. The encoded protein is a strong inducer of lymphocyte apoptosis. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Other variants exist, but their full-length natures have not yet been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FASTK Gene

FASTK (Fas-Activated Serine/Threonine Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FASTK include autism spectrum disorder. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and Fas-activated serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FASTKD1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FASTK Gene

  • Phosphorylates the splicing regulator TIA1, thereby promoting the inclusion of FAS exon 6, which leads to an mRNA encoding a pro-apoptotic form of the receptor.
